Broadway In Chicago, The Restaurant offers a variety of specialty empanadas and pies like their Steak and Guinness pie, or lobster mac and cheese pie. On the second helping of the segment, the Lieutenant brought samples from JR Dessert Bakery on 2841 w. Howard in Chicago, which sells mini and regular pies and cheesecakes of all kinds.
