If you thought a speakeasy deli that requires a password to get into was the last thing you needed in your life right now - think again. Tinfoil Liquor & Grocery in Highland Park seems like just a regular corner convenience store until you realize that white door in the back leads to a secret deli serving some absolutely excellent on-the-go sandwiches. Our move is either the roasted turkey or corned beef with a side of their mac salad, all of which are made in-house. So what’s the password to get the door to buzz open? We’re not usually ones to give away any surprises, but try asking the guy behind the register if they sell birthday candles.
