Counter Culture

Five new spots where the food is worth waiting (and waiting) in line for

Bergstein’s NY Delicatessen

Hyde Park, 1164 E. 55th St., 773-891-0429
Latkes. Matzo ball soup. Bagels with lox. Your bubbe’s got some competition.

Cellar Door Provisions

Logan Square, 3025 W. Diversey Ave., 773-697-8337
Each ingredient in your oh-so-buttery croissant can be traced to its humble farm origins.

Green Street Smoked Meats

West Town, 112 N. Green St., 312-754-0431
Of course ’cue from Brendan Sodikoff would be a hit. Fork-tender brisket helps.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken

Avondale, 3361 N. Elston Ave., 773-478-4000
This is the original hub of camped-out-around-the-block poultry fandom.

Wang mandoo stand at Joong Boo Market

Avondale, 3333 N. Kimball Ave., 773-478-5566
The stand’s massive kimchi-and-pork buns run $2 a pop.
