Get Your Groupon At Polo Café and Catering

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Oct 14, 2010 3:40PM


Kevin kindly pointed out today's Groupon deal of the day is for $25 worth of steak at Polo Café and Catering in the wunnerful Bridgeport area.

Polo has a soft spot in this Chicagoisto's heart. It was the subject of our first tryout post submitted to then food and drink editor Erin Shea. Later, Polo's Eggs Benedicto XVI, served with a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI at your table, was the subject of a promising series we scrapped called "Menu Items of the Damned." Chef Dave Samber has been doing business on the sketchy side — a relative term compared to the rest of the neighborhood — of Bridgeport since 1985.

But here's why you should buy the Groupon: Samber has the creepiest collection of porcelain dolls we've ever seen. It's certainly the only collection of porcelain dolls we've ever seen in a restaurant. After you've torn into Polo's Frenched, bone-in ribeye "Bridgeport chop" under the dead-eyed gaze of that doll collection, you'll have nightmares for days and a story to tell your grandchildren.
