Hello World (or like the 5 people that take time to read any of this). For those of you interested in what this blog might be like or what kind of blogger I am, there's not really much I can tell you. I can tell you that normally I wouldn't be that into posting my opinions in an online format (I have a very clear aversion for "statuses" of any kind [although I may have to use gchat status to get the word out about my blog]). I'm also not that great of a writer and clearly lack the humor of the greater bloggers of our time (see Danny Weiss).
What I can offer is the opinion of an amateur "foodie" that watches way too much food TV and usually has some friend in town that wants to try somewhere new and different. My interest in trying as many different restaurants as possible definitely started with my love for the show Diners Drive-Ins and Dives and has blossomed after my move to Lincoln Park.
Most of all I'm writing this to provide advice on restaurants. I've been led astray too many times by Yelp and Metro Mix (and once or twice by Guy Fieri), and here's my attempt to save you from my perils while drawing you toward some of the best food in Chicago (that an unemployed student can occasionally afford).
I hope you enjoy my suggestions, and if you have places you think I need to go to, let me hear it.
