On Friday, Nov. 15 and Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. a Hyde Park resident and two other Chicagoans will compare dining notes at both local restaurants. Virtue was nominated by Zo Wesson — actor, director and producer from Hyde Park — while Saucy Porka was nominated by Christopher Allison, U. of C. professor and Riverside resident.
