Craving a big serving of the Canadian dish of French fries topped with gravy and cheese curds? Head to Lake View-based The Big Cheese immediately. The first authentic Canadian poutinerie to hit Chicago, this restaurant from restaurateurs Michael Stadnicki and Rocky Aiyash and Calgary Drum owner Travis Burke opened in just April 2014. The menu features poutine for all diners, including vegetarians (loaded veggie, veggie nacho), gluten free eaters and good ol' meat eaters (Italian, smoked meat, notorious pig, chili dog and more).
