Check Please Effect

Last Friday, five friends and I headed over to Kedzie Street, on Chicago’s North Side, looking for Middle Eastern food. The area is the center of the city’s Middle Eastern scene, so there were plenty of options. But when we reached the strip’s first restaurant, Noon O Kabab, we just kept walking—we could see from the outside that it was packed. Same deal at the next place, Semiramis, but we put our name on the list anyway. In the meantime, I decided to venture down the street to Al Khayameih.

It was practically empty.

Why? It’s called the Check Please Effect.
