The Maxim Food Awards' Overlooked Runners-Up


If the 2009 Maxim Food Awards rang a little hollow to you on the Chicago Front, Mike Gebert of Sky Full of Bacon reveals that the magazine hit him up for his suggestions on "places to eat before you die" and "places to eat before they die," and then ran nary a one of them. Gebert's posted his full list of suggestions over at SFoB — they include some nonsurprises, like Hot Doug's and Schwa (which made it in under Grant Achatz's byline), but also some real gems of a more LTHForum-esque variety: Calumet Fisheries, Cicero's Kias, and more.
