Sweet, Nii, sweet. BTW, I was visiting a dental specialist last week, and he was wearing a bow tie. Somehow, I found that strangely reassuring.

Talk about something coming out of left field. The Brown Sack, Manny's Coffee Shop, Kuma's Corner are all more worthy of a Bib Gourmand commendation.

Tru is more than a 1 star, as is Everest. Those to me, are solid 2 star establishments. If Schwa were fancier you could say the same.
Spiaggia is also more than a star, but it needs to get out of the 80s first.
+1. Tru and Everest are at a level way above Longman & Eagle (where we had lunch last...
Spiaggia (right across the street from the Drake - one of the best Italian restauants in the country with one Michelin star)
Tru - Rick Tramonto's place is spacious and the food is very refined (also one Michelin star);]
Les Nomades - I've never been here but I've heard raves;
NoMi - spectacular views of Michigan Avenue and food with a modern French twist; and
Topolambopo - Rick Bayless' temple to haute Mexican cuisine.

I didnt see this till now and would have signed up for this.
I did PM and e-mail a dozen or so local forumites (all guys I've communicated with before) in publicizing the event, but I like your idea.

There wasn't interest - only one person paid-up, and we decided to cancel rather than waiting until the last minute. We wanted to be fair to the vendors - we didn't want to tell them the night before that it wasn't going to happen.
