Chicken Vesuvio

Chicken Vesuvio is served nowhere outside of Chicago. A dish of sautéed and baked, bone-in, skin-on parts of chicken and wedges of potato saturated with white wine and garlic and presented as a mountain on the plate, it most likely was named after a pre-War downtown restaurant named Vesuvio’s. Only a handful of restaurants continue to serve it, among them the renowned steak houses Harry Caray’s and Gene & Georgetti’s.
