    what, no foie in the salad or dessert?

    Just to be sure I have this right - this is a city of Chicago regulation, right? So I should be able to get my foie gras fix in the suburbs?

    Could determine some fine dining locations on the fringes. Not that a place looking to open in the Loop would move to Schaumburg, but places around O'Hare would likley locate in Rosemont rather than Chicago.

    And then the economic development people will weigh in, though I doubt they will outweigh the animal rights folks.

    Yes, although it seems possible that some suburbs with publicity-seeking politicians will follow suit.

    Also, there have been rumblings on the state level, as mentioned in this thread.
