Barack Obama Recommends Dixie Kitchen on 'Check, Please!'


The Barack Obama–Dixie Kitchen episode of Check, Please! is now available for viewing online at WTTW's website. So if you missed it on Friday evening or don't live in Chicago, there you go. Check Please! puts average Joes and Janes together, with each recommending a restaurant for the others to check out. The producers never aired the Obama episode because he was considered too polished and professional and was thought to have dominated the show. Dixie Kitchen: 5225 South Harper Avenue, Chicago IL 60615 (map); 773-363-4943;
