It's What's Good In the Neighborhood
 / 

I lived in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood for a year in 2001-2002. My state senator was this guy named Barack Obama.

My favorite show on local TV there was called “Check, Please.” Three people from all over Chicago would recommend their favorite restaurants — everything from casual neighborhood hangs to places with wine lists longer than your couch — and they would each go to all three, then review them together.

Well, Ezra Klein got a hold of an early, unaired episode of “Check, Please” featuring — yes — Barack Obama. He’s plugging the Dixie Kitchen, one of my favorite places for catfish. So this just made me happy today.
