oday we meet up with that restaurant’s chef Phillip Foss at Jim’s Original, a Polish sausage stand that has been operating almost continuously for 76 years, closing only briefly to move from its original home on Maxwell Street over to Union Street, where it’s open 24 hours a day, every single day of the year. (Yes, even Christmas and Thanksgiving.) Jimmy Stefanovic, who purchased the stand from his aunt way back when, is credited with inventing the Chicago-style Polish, which features grilled onions, mustard, and sport peppers. (And nothing else.) It’s fantastic.
