Tonight at 9|8c Anthony Bourdain is back for another season of adrenaline-filled layovers all over the world. This week, Tony lands at Chicago’s O’Hare airport with exactly 43 hours to kill. He heads straight to the airport’s exit, vowing to not spend a single minute of his trip at O’Hare. Instead, he cruises Chicago in a vintage Caddy, searches for the perfect Chicago-style hot dog (don’t ask for ketchup!), day drinks with painter and blogger Bruce Cameron Elliott and dines with Top Chef champion Stephanie Izard.
Gear up for tonight’s episode with our behind-the-scenes photos, and see all the places Tony visits with his Chicago Travel Guide. Want to travel like Tony in the cities featured in The Layover?
