We apologize in advance to anyone who already believes WLS-AM (890) mid-morning host Mancow Muller is getting too much virtual ink in this newly-launched blog. But we must, for a moment, revisit the Muller item posted a few days ago about his appearance on an upcoming segment of "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" on the Travel Channel.
At the time Muller told us he took chef and TV personality Bourdain to the Silver Cloud restaurant in Bucktown, which Muller said was housed in a rail car. Well, we didn't find any reference to a rail car at the Silver Cloud Web site. But we figured Muller surely knew where he was eating, so we posted the item. Turns out we figured wrong. We heard from several readers questioning whether Muller had indeed dined at the Silver Cloud. Turns out readers were right to question the WLS radio host.
Muller's recollection is clearer now, we hope. Why the confusion at first? "I eat at both places," was Muller's explanation. He tells us he in fact dined with Bourdain at the Silver Palm, a restaurant located at 768 N. Milwaukee that is indeed housed in a vintage train car. Great.
One other thing. In our earlier post, we forget to mention that Bourdain apparently loved the Silver Palm's pork chop sandwich dolled up with bacon and a fried egg. Sounds like real Chicago chow all right.
