With its white deli cases, waxed butcher paper, and gingham-patterned walls, you might be tempted to order a corned beef on rye or pastrami, but the setting is actually the backdrop for this customizable T-shirt shop in Bucktown. Whether you want to create your own attire or pick from an array of humorous slogans (e.g. Key West or Bust; Madonna Is My Religion), all shirts are made to order, packaged in a brown paper bag, and served up with a bag of chips.
Tip: Can’t make it here? Place your order online.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
