Chicago IL...ItalianA stone's throw from Steppenwolf Theatre. Take the CTA Red Line over, eat at Vinci's and then walk over to catch a play. Joie De Vivre!
Toledo OHTarek Joseph, who is one of my best friends and is also Lebanese-American, says this is may be the best food in both the U.S. and Lebanon...he would know. I thought it was stellar, too.
Taos NMThis was my late friend Bob Bodenhamer's favorite place. We'd go together when I stayed at his Laughing Horse Inn...it's right up the road. Maybe the best New Mexican Cuisine out there.Address: 114 Don Juan Lane on the left just off of Paseo del Pueblo NortePhone: 505-751-1450
Chicago ILA classic Chicago style joint and a true landmark in Hyde Park
Taos NMThe food here is terrific.... a great ensemble of bakery items, killer breakfast and a lunch/dinner menu with a Mediterranean flair. This is my favorite breakfast stop when friends come to town.812 B Paseo del Pueblo Norte 575-758-1226
Taos NMGreat food and atmosphere plus killer margaritas and a great beer and wine shop.
Taos NMFondly referred to as Taos' Living Room...the best margaritas in town and a wonderful place to meet for food and music

Taos NMI grew up in Chicago, which I think has the finest pizza anywhere, but I love the pizza at "The Outback".
Taos NMMy friend Zuni calls this place "his office" and it's where we often meet for lunch. A lot of locals love this place and I do, too. This is definitely where I go for some great pancakes.
Taos NMTaos is an amazing place for food and drink. I am continuously amazed and rather than stay up all night entering links of all the great places to go this guide does the job a whole lot better than I can.
