No Reservations: Chicago

This current season of "No Reservations" is the best yet, in my opinion, and I was really excited when I found out where tomorrow's episode will take place -- Chicago!

I've never been, but the boyf has, and he really, really enjoyed it, especially the food. I really, really enjoy deep-dish pizza, the kind they make in Chicago, so I'm looking forward to trying the real thing there someday. Plus I hear the culture is great, with wonderful little jazz clubs and tons of awesome museums.

Here's what Ingrid has to say about tomorrow night's episode:
Tony loves the energy and edge of big cities. So how is it that he has avoided Chicago for so long? In the upcoming episode of No Reservations, he sets off on "some unfinished business" to rectify that situation.

When people think of Chicago they think of deep-dish pizza, hot dogs, seafood from the Calumet River and Mancow Muller, Chicago's own shock jock. Tony decides to put all of them to the test and soak in even a bit more of Chicago, such as meeting with avant-garde chef Homaro Cantu, and dinning at the famous L20. He even makes an appearance at a backyard BBQ, for homemade specialties like sausage, creamed corn and beans.

Tony concludes that although Chicago has been dubbed 'the Second City' – Chicago holds its own as a great metropolis and in fact needs no comparison. Make sure you watch on a full stomach, because the food looks delicious!
OK my mouth is already watering... This episode airs tomorrow night at 10 PM on the Travel Channel, and Tony will hopefully update his blog with a post about his trip there soon.

Here's a sneak-peak:

ETA: I just found this interview MSN did recently with Bourdain, and it's a must-read. Check it out.
