Originally hailing from the great city of Detroit, Sam Faye has spent an immeasurable amount of time eating in Chicago’s greatest (and often most mediocre) restaurants. Having spent more than two years as The Infatuation’s Chicago Content Lead, we bailed him out from eating two dinners every night and moved him to New York to run operations. He still eats two dinners on occasion, but that’s his own decision.
