    I did this a few years ago when Catherine was hosting and can't recommend enough. Everyone was incredibly nice and it was interesting to see the inner workings of how a TV show is made.

    They really do a nice job there. When I was on a dozen years ago (with Alpana hosting), I was afraid I was going to come off sounding like an idiot -- I had never been on TV in a sustained fashion like that before -- but the wine helped and the editors did a great job cutting everything into a tight show where all the guests came across well.

    Great job . . . but who was that clown who ordered Pad Thai?! People never fail to amaze and disappoint. :evil:

    The guy was really nice so I have nothing bad to say. But I remember he kept calling Chicago Cut the cut and well that's enough to form my impression of a person. :)

    Best part of this experience is it introduced me to CMJ, which is now easily my favorite restaurant in the city

    It doesn't appear to be on the Check Please website, but I have it on Youtube broken down to three parts. In order of appearance on the show:

    Tanoshii
    Xni-Pec (now defunct; that one was my choice.)
    Timo (now defunct)

    I remember that segment well. Great job! And some LTH bonuses, too. There's a Trixie-Pea sighting at 3:16 (and possibly Jazzfood, screen left) and a Santander sighting at the 3:22 mark! :)

    I do miss the old Xni Pec in Cicero, I have to say. Luckily, I still see Antonio and his family pretty regularly and occasionally am still able to have that great Xni-Pec food (Antonio and Luisa are such sweeties. A year or so ago I got a text from him saying that Luisa was cooking up a bunch of chiles en nogada, would I like to have some, his treat?! Uh, heck yeah! He even delivered it to me. That was perhaps my favorite dish there, though that was a seasonal special.)

    That's funny because as I watched the segment, I remembered how much I loved their version of that dish. It is quickly approaching that time of year, too.

    WhyBeeSea, I don't know how I missed this episode. I am so glad you shared it here. I thought you did an excellent job. Like you, CMG sounded enticing and I kept note for future reference. Your segment was the best and I could feel your love for the food as you talked.
