Time Out says

We like to think John Manion was a daredevil in a past life—maybe it's because he plays with fire for a living at his celebrated West Loop restaurants, El Che Steakhouse & Bar and La Sirena Clandestina. Manion's cooking is a veritable love letter to his travels through South America, with special attention paid to the cuisines of Argentina and Brazil. (Yeah, this is the place to come when empanada and chimichurri cravings strike.) The centerpiece of his eatery is a red-hot, wood-burning stove, and anything that touches those flames is sure to be dynamite.
