Where does food writer and personality Michael Ruhlman eat when he's in Chicago? We're not sure. But what we do know is that he just declared his favorite restaurants around town: Alinea and "any of Kahan's spots." That being chef and restaurateur Paul Kahan, of course, who can occasionally be spotted on Randolph Street outside his Avec and Blackbird restaurants, when he's not checking in at The Publican or Big Star.
