Watch Conan O’Brien Chow Down on Chicago’s Best Food

Comedian gorges himself, launches wiener over bridge

Comedian Conan O’Brien, who is shooting his show in Chicago this week, didn’t spend long in the Windy City without sampling the local fare, which he deems “the best food in the world.” Check out the video of his week-long diet, with signature dishes at some of Chicago’s landmark restaurants. From deep-dish pizza from Lou Malnati’s to flaming Salanaki at Greek Islands, he tried it all. He even consulted a cardiologist to learn the hard truth of the health implications of his diet.


While he was there, Conan also launched a ten-foot bratwurst across Chicago’s State Street Bridge for reasons that remain unclear. Check it out below.
