Restaurant Week got off to a flying start with busy dining rooms (reservations for lunch and dinner were extremely limited), tantalizing menus and superb food. During Chicago's Restaurant Week, which actually lasts 10 days through Feb. 26, participating...
One of the best things about Chicago's Restaurant Week is that it allows diners to experience, at low financial risk, interesting and new (at least to them) restaurants. I've been meaning to visit Wood (3335 N. Halsted St., 773-935-9663) since it opened...
I don't know if teachers still do this, but at the end of each school year, I was handed a summer reading list, a sheet of required and optional books that would prepare students for the coming school year. (I still owe a measure of revenge to the teacher...
It's safe to say that nobody knows what to expect from this year's Taste of Chicago. Stripped down to five days from its usual 10, the number of food vendors trimmed to 40 (compared with 59 in 2011) and separated from its traditional Fourth of July...

Dale Levitski's career arc is like that of most top chefs. In reverse. After running a couple of modest Chicago restaurants, Levitski found himself thrust into the spotlight as the surprise pick to succeed Grant Achatz at four-star Trio, and, just as...
Q: You have a pretty big audience of friends. I bet they have the some of the same questions for you that I have. When you eat out, do you go with a group of people? Do you order extra dishes just so you can taste them? Do you take notes while you are...
Spring has just begun, and yet we've already had more than a month of agreeable weekend-brunch weather. The mind-boggling warm weather we've been enjoying lately has me thinking that balmy Sunday afternoons will continue forever. Which is crazy, of...
Time once again for my annual exercise in humiliation, as I try to predict the star recipients in the 2013 Michelin Chicago Guide, which hits bookstores Wednesday. This is the third year that Michelin has published a Chicago guide, and if there's one...
