no reservations, chicago

February 02, 2009



Just got done watching Anthony Bourdain hit up Chicago on tonight’s episode of No Reservations.

Tamales and deep dish pizza were obvious choices, but they also hit up Hot Doug’s, Moto, The Silver Palm, and L20… While they didn’t film at Blackbird or Avec, they did do a backyard party at owner Paul Kahan’s house. Oh, and Grant Achatz’ Alinea got a mention, too. Great choices, across the board!

I won’t go into too much detail, since there are quite a few other blog posts out there that can do it much better. Check out Louisa Chu’s blog, and Bourdain’s own post. And in case you didn’t notice, this photo was taken at the Silver Palm, right on my corner. Yeah yeah, that’s freakin’ Mancow
