The Berghoff in Chicago is closed now, after
107 years. My parents used to take us kids to Chicago at least annually; morning was spent at one of the many wonderful museums, the afternoon at Marshall Field's (also sadly gone now) and lunch always at The Berghoff. And, of course, we all loved the creamed spinach (and the fresh rootbeer and the weinerschnitzel...). Many years ago, my mom was thrilled when Creamed Spinach Berghoff was printed in the "You Asked for It" column in Gourmet magazine; she passed it on to me. I admit that I use a 10 oz box of frozen spinach; otherwise I follow the recipe faithfully.
