The Scout Waterhouse & Kitchen in Chicago's South Loop has long loaves of brioche and isn't afraid to cut them lengthwise for the mammoth sandwich they call the Foot-Long Triple Cheese. It contains nine slices of cheese (American, muenster and cheddar, all made in Wisconsin) and comes with short rib if you so desire.

Here’s the soup’s origin story, and a recipe below
Oct 15, 2014 9:00 am

We dove deep into the dish's history, and found a recipe from of all places, Brooklyn.
