"The Glory That Is Chicago --in meat form:"Courtesy Anthony Bourdain - @Bourdain

Food Network and Travel Channel star Anthony Bourdain, host of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, was on site filming Wednesday at Johnnie’s Beef in Elmwood Park, 7500 West North Ave., just outside Oak Park.

Bourdain was visiting the Chicago area and his last stop before hitting the airport was Johnnie’s. He tweeted a picture of an Italian Beef with hot and sweet peppers, with extra juice.

“The glory that is Chicago,” the caption read.

Although he left soon after eating, film crews remained on site to get some extra footage inside the kitchen and outside of customers enjoying their lunches.
