Chicago Sun-Times
Are you out in it? We're on it. All the street-level tunes, flicks, chow, cocktails and more from sources around the city ...

Set it, don't forget it!

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).
