1405 W. Irving Park Road 312-415-6919 Irish and English clients who purchased Nick Spencer's homemade sausage and bacon at local farmer's markets in recent years provided the inspiration for the Lakeview storefront, which opened last summer. "Customers would come see us [at the farmer's markets] and say they were missing chocolate tea cakes or proper cheese," Spencer said. And the wacky name? "It's to help people connect with the quirky British and Irish sense of humor," he said. At one point, the shop's working name included the phrase "Great British and Irish-Style Foods." "Then someone suggested 'Jolly Great,' which then became 'Jolly Posh,' Spencer said. Popular buys include Spencer's pork banger sausages ($7 for one pound) and imported goodies ranging from toffee to tea.
