ROES AND ROES

A New Second-Floor Den of Kung Pao

“... and then one day, I looked up and saw it. A new—yet very classic—Chinese restaurant appeared right in the middle of River North.” That’s the ending of a new book about your harrowing search for good five-spice crispy duck. Sorry about the spoiler.
