Passero was the pick of Arlington Heights resident Helen Weiner, who will appear on the program with two other guest reviewers and host Alpana Singh.

The eatery features a menu inspired by family recipes and other creations of head chef Matt Peota, a former sous chef for Rick Bayless' Frontera Hospitality Group. Offerings include handmade pasta and Italian small plates at dinner, classic cocktails and a boutique wine list. Peota runs the 60-seat restaurant with his wife, Rikki.

The episode also will feature EMA in Chicago's River North neighborhood, and Whisk in the West Town neighborhood.
