This is part two of my interview with Antonio Gorjoux, the kitchen manager of the Cherry Cricket. In part one of that interview, Gorjoux dishes on the day he nearly got fired, eating cow-eye tacos, and the secrets behind the Cricket burger.

Best food city in America: Chicago. It's a huge city with a lot of competition, so the bar is set really high. I'm a steak guy, and Chicago restaurants have great steaks, but I love the deep-dish pizzas, too, which I'd never had before moving to Chicago. I can honestly say that I never had a bad experience at any restaurant while I lived in Chicago. Everything from the food to the service was amazing at every restaurant I went to.
