As we've mentioned previously, the Chicago installment of Anthony Bourdain's popular show, "No Reservations," airs on the Travel Channel tonight at 9 p.m. (note: many city-dwelling Comcast customers don't appear to get the channel at first glance; we've been told that re-scanning your channels may make it pop up at channel 62).
This means that some of your favorite area restaurants may soon be seeing a boost in business thanks to their time in the TV spotlight (maybe not a "Check, Please!" type bump, but still). If you've been meaning to try any of these spots, better get your reservations in now - better yet, set your DVR tonight and grab a table while the show actually airs. Below you'll find the 10 places Bourdain patronizes during his visit (and here are all 10 on a handy map).
