Central Kitchen & Tap is the place we didn't know we were waiting for. Friends, you must give it a try. Why? These are just off the top of my head but there are undoubtedly more: 1. James, your genial host, clearly has thought through the concept and knows what he's doing. 2. Fresh, delicious food with literally something for everybody, from vegans to omnivores to carnivores. Appetizers, salads, lots of creative-looking sandwiches, and a dozen or so entrees. 3.The a la carte menu means people can be very choosy about what they order, which is a great relief to gourmands like me, who can never resist the fries or chips or what-have-you. 4. Super-reasonable prices - as in, 2 sandwiches, 2 sides, 2 drinks for under $20. Sandwiches $3 to $7, entrees $7 to $13. Generous sides are $2.50, or "the sink" (2 sides) for $3.50. 5. Counter service means your food is even more reasonable and gets to you faster. You come in, you order, you get your drink and snag a table, and they call your name when it's ready. 6. A well-priced, good selection of wines & beers by the glass for those so inclined. 7. ATTENTION LOCALS! 10% off everything, all the time if you live in zip code 60630 or work for the city. Can't beat that. 8. Free refills on soft drinks. 9. Separate kids' section of the menu, although a number of items look kid-friendly. 10. Free wi-fi. 11. A few smallish TV screens here and there, but they are muted and don't dominate the room. Decent rock music plays instead, low enough to have a conversation. 12. Casual, relaxed, fun vibe. Cool and yet not obnoxious. 13. Soft-serve ice cream & chocolate chip cookies for the sweet of tooth. 14. They kept the old Super Cup sign and revamped it instead of tearing the thing down. Thank you for repurposing the sign instead of destroying it. Old things are cool. 15. Elvis Costello is quoted (briefly) on the front of the takeout menu.
