Rahm Emanuel: Out To Lunch

Bronzeville parents, activists, and educators are on day four day nine day 10 of a hunger strike to get a meeting with the Board of Ed, along with a vote on August 26th, for their idea for a revamped program at Dyett High School. There has been no public response from Rahm Emanuel, Forrest Claypool, or any member of the Board of Education. While the hunger strikers are going without food to simply get a meeting about their neighborhood school, WCT thought we'd take a look at some of Rahm's favorite places to chow down:
  • Lula Cafe, located in a trendy neighborhood populated by Chicago educational profiteers, is described as farm-to-table, funky, and eclectic. This spot offers crushed beets ($8), duck breast ($29), and poached salmon ($28). Simply bobo!
  • Naha, in chic River North, is praised for having nuanced and imaginative food. Today's menu offers foie gras with a "tarte tatin" of roasted pineapple, shallot, fennel, and mountain huckleberries ($28) as well as a ribeye of beef with a fondant of "Rose Finn" potatoes ($58). Bon appetit!
  • Mastro's Steakhouse, just around the corner from Naha, offers huge martinis and impeccable service. You can order up twin Lobster tails ($68) and a 48 oz. Porterhouse ($99). Cha-ching!
  • Chicago's Home of Chicken and Waffles, in ignored Bronzeville, is visited only during election season to court minority votes. Here, you can get various combinations of chicken and waffles with the most expensive item going for $15.50. Great for that political cameo!
Maybe Rahm will dine at one of these spots this week with Forrest Claypool or Garry McCarthy to discuss the too-late statement they will make expressing outrage over the 5 CPS students shot on Monday or exactly how long they'll let the hunger strike continue before giving Bronzeville community members a fucking meeting.
