The premise of Check, Please, the popular WTTW food show hosted by Catherine De Orio, is that ordinary diners suggest and review their favorite restaurants. For one episode only (the finale of season 15), this democratic premise is being turned on its head in favor of a panel of experts—some of Chicago's top chefs—who will reveal their favorite places to dine in Chicago.

The episode will air tonight at 8 (and again several times, check the website for details) and feature Chefs Grant Achatz, Bill Kim, Iliana Regan, Curtis Duffy, Paul Kahan and many more. They'll reveal their favorite restaurants.

But, if you want a sneak peek, there's an online quiz that reveals some of the picks. For example, Grant Achatz chooses Katsu, Curtis Duffy picks Tiparo's, and Paul Kahan dines at Noon o Kabab. Based on these picks, this might actually be a great episode to get tips from real experts about some restaurants slightly less famous than the ones they work in.

Oh, and as a bonus, former hosts Amanda Puck and Alpana Singh will be on the show. Watch tonight at 8 on WTTW.
