If you've never dined at Rosebud in Chicago, you're missing a fantastic experience. Flat noodles are their own type of pasta and the sauce enhances the noodles. If you try their lemon chicken with peas, you will be wanting more the next day.

It was a pretty good meal although the white wine whatever sauce was too tart, it seemed unbalanced. I would still go back.
