Even though Bears defensive end Israel Idonije can clearly work with Peppers, his chef friend (who has Charlie Trotter's and NoMI on his resume) is the one doing the culinary heavy lifting at their restaurant Alain's, an elegant white-tableclother with soaring ceilings, colorful African art from said chef's personal collection, and a chef's table in the kitchen that outside diners can monitor via a flatscreen.
