Since the Travel Channel aired No Reservations: Cleveland on Monday, many locals have aired their discontent for the places that Anthony Bourdain did and didn't visit. Even Scene's own Jared Klaus had a few issues of his own, with which I'd have to concur. Skyline Chilli? WTF? However, Bourdain did make up for his Cincinnati-inspired grievance by visiting Hot Sauce Williams with Cleveland's culinary star, Mike Symon. But what most critical viewers have clearly forgotten is that television is little more than an art of omission. According to Michael Ruhlman's blog, there were many places Bourdain visited that were cut from the final edit, including the mysterious Velvet Tango Room. Ruhlman says that even Bourdain was pissed that the uber-exclusive bar didn't make it on tape. -- Denise Grollmus
