That's a good point! (No it isn't.) I'd be happy to join the team! (I'd rather be eaten by wart hogs.) Your cake is delicious! (Thanks for the food poisoning, Julia Child.) These are but a few examples of the lies we tell at work. Most aren't...
Things are certainly heating up, foodwise, in the neighborhood dubbed Lakeshore East, the easternmost spit of land between the Chicago River and Randolph Street. The stylish, upscale steakhouse III Forks opened there late last year; Aria restaurant is...
It would be easy to overlook Fogon, an 8-week-old Mexican restaurant in River West, especially as the space has been home to two or three forgettable restaurants in the last few years. The restaurant's pedigree suggests that would be an error. Fogon is...

I'm not awarding four stars to Goosefoot, the splendid new restaurant by former Les Nomades chef Chris Nugent. But I suspect it's just a matter of time — and not a lot of time — before I do. Goosefoot opened in mid-December with the plug-and-...

Funny how a simple gesture, a little grace note, can render a dining experience memorable. For instance, I would send people to BLT American Brasserie just for the popovers. Maybe it's because bread at restaurant tables these days is often missing, or...
Eventually, the restaurant team of Kevin Boehm and Rob Katz will open a restaurant that fails to live up to expectations. Mostly because expectations for this everything-touched-turns-golden duo keep rising. How can they not? From Boka to Girl & the Goat...
