Chicago’s Bittersweet Cafe serves tasty works of art

Is rap music ‘music’? Is pop art ‘art’? Here’s another insoluble: suppose a pastry chef uses flour, water, sugar, chocolate, frosting, and other yummy fixins to create a cake. When the cake is presented, is it a piece of art?

Now suppose an artist uses exactly the same ingredients and steps to create the same cake, but puts a title on it like, ‘Man’s Inhumanity to Man’ and puts it in a museum? Is it art? Now go to the Bittersweet Cafe on Belmont in Chicago and ponder these questions whilst indulging in the city’s next best thing to living in the heart of Paris. A literal showcase of macaroons, tarts, biscotti, and even gelato awaits you and your arguments for or against. In the end, who cares? Bittersweet is a gallery unto itself. Espresso by Illy.
