Certain menu items are like siren songs: They lure you in the restaurant for the first time, keep you coming back for more... then, despite your multiple visits and other intriguing items on the menu, they accidentally prevent you from ordering anything else. Ever. This week's Open Thread wants to know: Which restaurant (or bar or bakery) dish keeps you from branching out?
What's the dish that you've ordered an embarrassing number of times; the one you'll hold a four-level freakout over should it ever leave the menu? And why do you love it so? Leave your reply in the comments section or send a note to the always-open tipline; as always, we'll turn your responses into a map next week.
