Yes, we live in the city in part so we can be big ol' snobs about not having to eat at chain restaurants. (KIDDING.) But in the chain world, I just discovered Maggiano's Little Italy, and for a chain, it's really pretty good! I tried the Rigatoni D, with chicken, mushrooms and caramelized onions in a Marsala cream sauce, and it was awesome!
Strangly, they have almost the exact same dish with a different name (Carmela's Chicken Rigatoni) at Romano's Macaroni Grill (same owner as Maggiano's) and it's only a sad imitation of the original. Not that I know which was the original. But that sounds better.
