Not my top choice from the menu

I guess when you review restaurants for a living, you need to be willing to try just about anything. Still, it's not every day that that you come across a review for a dish made of raccoon. According to the Chicago Tribune's Monica Eng, "the meat emerged pleasantly gamy with a slight chew -- not unlike venison or bison. And the sweetness of the beets and curry beautifully played off the rich savory meat and earthy artichokes. If eating roadkill is wrong, I don't want to be right."

I don't care how trendy the restaurant is, I just don't see myself saying to the waiter, "I'll take the raccoon please."
