Because using his nickname in conjunction with his last name sounds awkward, and using his nickname in the first place implies a certain familiarity. :coffee:

Oh...well that's what everyone calls him on the show...I guess I'm just used to hearing it...and that's how Vikram referred to him...I wasn't trying to imply anything. :dunno: I've been watching No Reservations for so long that I guess it got ingrained.

Have you been watching The Layover? Looking forward to the new season. I was hoping his Chicago episode would come out before my trip next weekend, but no such luck. Apparently he's leaving No reservation for CNN?

Yes! The Layover is great. It's perfect for quick trips. Do you need Chicago suggestions? I know the town pretty well.

Yeah...don't know how the CNN gig will work...not looking forward to it.

You could tell change was coming. Last season of No Reservation was oddly political.

Yeah, that would be cool. The only for sure place I want to visit is The Map Room.

From what I've read, Chicago is supposed to have good Vietnamese & Mexican. I'm pretty big on both of those.

There's a little neighborhood called New Chinatown or Argyle. It has its own L stop. It's a Vietnamese neighborhood and has lots of goodies. The best Viet in town is located there, it's called Tank Noodle. Huge menu, tons of options.

For Mexican visit any of Rick Bayless' spots, Frontera, Topolobampo, etc.

For tube steak...most of it is beef. If you want sausage, to to Portillo's or Al's Beef.

Thanks for the reccomendations. Tank Noodle was great, although I didn't order the "Beef noodles soup with cow’s penis"
