And He Didn't Cuss Out Anyone!

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who was in town introducing his small kitchen appliance lines at the International Housewares Show Sunday, made the local restaurant rounds as well.
Le Passage general manager Joel Barnes excitedly tweeted Saturday that the "Hell's Kitchen" star dined drama free at the bar's adjacent The Drawing Room:
"Gordon Ramsey from 'Hell's Kitchen' is eating @DrawingRoomChi and getting a bottle @ladylepassage after. I hope he doesn't yell at me," he tweeted, and followed up later with, "So far so good...(he) hasn't pissed me off yet!"
And on Sunday, the controversial chef dined at Lincoln Park eatery BOKA, according to a tweet by owner Kevin Boehm.
Sounds like he wasn't behaving badly for once!
Todd English dined at The Bristol Sunday.
In other celeb chef news, Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse hit up The Publican on Sunday, according to owner/chef Paul Kahan in yet another tweet.
And "Iron Chef" star Masaharu Morimoto and heartbreaker culinary guy Todd English made the scene at The Bristol. (Marimoto later showed up at Takashi for Rick Bayless's dinner for his management team).
They were also in town for the International Housewares Show.
