Tonight LTHForum hosts its second Great Neighborhood Restaurants awards dinner at Sun Wah, where plaudits will be heaped on some of the 39 nominees put forth in this go-around. Food Chain operatives plied overworked, underpaid LTH bureaucrats with Old Fashioned apple fritters and sodium pentothal and uncovered the identities of two winners, both favorites here as well. Congratulations go to Buffalo Grove’s Uzbek restaurant Chaihanna and the superior Sichuan at Ben Li’s Double Li.

Other possible winners are still shrouded in mystery. Will Urban Belly overcome the ill will engendered by Bill Kim’s anti-blogging stance? And if so, will he send Sacheen Littlefeather to decline?
