Mashed Potatoes

The
Restaurant:
Stanley’s Kitchen and Tap,
Chicago

The Skinny: This convivial
neighborhood hangout was founded in 1993 as a pub and restaurant serving
home-style food with a Southern spin. All the much-loved standards are here—mac
’n cheese, chili, meatloaf, Southern fried chicken—but the dish to beat is the
mashed potato. “We’re sure people love our version because it has plenty of
cream and butter,” speculates chef Jaysen Euler. “But we also believe it’s
because for the last 17 years they’ve been made the same each and every day. In
fact, there are three employees that prepare our potatoes the majority of the
time, and all three have been with Stanley’s since the day we opened.” —Emma Sloley
