A chowhound, but not one of us, in Tribune today w/ picks

There's a story in today's Tribune food section where the story of how they happened to write this story may be more interesting than the story... it's about a Metra conductor who has a 5 hour break in his day, so he spends it scouting out new places to eat in a pretty wide area around downtown (and a few farflung spots thrown in). You may look at the piece and wonder why him and not me and my picks in the paper, but his Chowhounding instincts are pretty good, at least two of his places have been mentioned here in the last week (Klas and Old Lviv), and 3 or 4 of them have not mentioned before at all here that I recall. Check it out, his comments are decent overall, but here's the quickie list of what he named:

Evergreen (Chinatown)
D'Amato's
Windy City Cafe (1062 W. Chicago)
Old Lviv
Artopolis (Greektown bakery)
Ignotz Ristorante (2421 S. Oakley)
Klas
Lindy's Chili
Nuevo Leon
Chicago Brauhaus
