    G.E.B.
    841 W Randolph St
    Restaurateur Joe Bastianich told fellow MasterChef judge Graham Elliot not to open a burger place. Instead Elliot (graham elliot, grahamwich) is doing a bistro, with dishes less than $20 and a church-inspired design with, for one, mock saint candles honoring chefs and musicians. Equating chefs to saints? Only Elliot would have the balls.
