unless you're into prostitutes, do not go to Gibson's -- it's an overrated chain.

I didn't know it was a chain. I've seen it in The League.

my friend mike sheerin was one of the main chefs at blackbird. he opened a trendy place north of the city called the trencherman, and just opened a gig in the west loop called embeya (which is "progressive Asian" (like buggy)).

it's not a huge chain, but i think they have like 3 or 4 locations. every time i've eaten there, i've had an overpriced, usually over cooked, steak (plus, i don't like where they source their steaks from). the one downtown is in what's called "the viagra triangle." lots of suits looking for "high-end" hookers.

i always laughed when they showed it on The League.

Does Progressive Asian = Asian Fusion?
