Tim – I have been following and loving your cooking/writing for ages, and I just have to say how incredibly excited and grateful I was to learn that you selected Open Books for this project. I run the volunteer program at Open Books, and we all feel a little bit like celebrities today. Thank you, thank you!
I live in OP and have been meaning to try Falafill since its OP location opened–finally passed by yesterday as I left the Book Table, saw the sign in the window promoting your wrap & decided I had to try it. I was going to just have one bite in my car before driving home, but ended up wolfing down the whole thing right there. I was horrified when I realized that this amazing meal would only be around one more day & immediately got out of my car & went back for another one, which I asked them to cut in half & share with a friend. She & I agree that it’s one of the best things we’ve ever eaten in our lives and can’t believe it won’t be available ever again. (Why, oh WHY couldn’t I have discovered it on November 1st? Tragic!) Tim, you need to get somebody to put this on a permanent menu….preferably someplace right here in Oak Park.
Kathy! That is so nice to hear. I am really glad you liked the wrap, and it is always good to hear from fellow Oak Parkers. It is a short run, but the good news is that the chefs special is usually pretty awesome. I’ve tried a bunch of them over the last year and none disappointed. So, give some of the others a try. Thanks again for writing!
