an insomniac. Between juggling law school, being the food and drink editor of the Chicagoist and penning the New & Notables for Citysearch, we can’t imagine this guy sleeps too much. He did do us the favor of taking a minute out of his impossibly busy schedule to answer our questions though, so cheers to that.

How much is too much to spend on dinner? If it’s more than $100/person, it had better be extraordinary, memorable and beautiful.
