Pick a city, pick a restaurant, pull up a seat, and keep your eyes peeled. You're about to dine with members of the A-List.
Chicago is a big sports town ... duh so the real appeal of celebs is at restaurants where the Bulls, Bears, and Cubs hang out regularly. They tend to congregate at Mike Ditka's (the iconic former coach of da Bears' place) and chow down on Da Pork Chop and the Fridge Burger. Gibsons is also a favorite steakhouse. But when Michael Jordan dines at his own restaurant, one sixtyblue, he usually takes the round table for 12, right off The Salon, complete with living-room chairs, big-screen TV, and VCR. Notables recently spotted at one sixtyblue include Charles Barkley, Beyoncé Knowles, Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, and Bill Clinton. Other stars on the menu include jumbo shrimp with pepper confit and monkfish cooked in an iron skillet.
