The little things are no yolk

For the sixth straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2012."

Sometimes it's the little things that make a meal worth remembering.

Miss Katie's Diner, one of the Picciurro boys' places, does it right with the dish Bill Clinton made famous.

Clinton visited the diner, at 1900 W. Clybourn St., in 2008.

During his visit, he had the corned beef hash with two eggs. I went Big Bill's way the other night and the hash was about as good as it gets. With two eggs over easy, it made a great meal.

But what really made it special were the thick slices of Italian toast that came with it. Done perfectly so that you can use the slices to sop up the eggs, it was a little thing that took the meal from the better than average into the superlative area.

Like lots of things in life, it's the little things that matter.
