Unfortunately the special Iron Chef dinner at Takashi has sold out, BUT there is still an amazing place where you can watch Chef Takashi Yagihashi impress with the best on Iron Chef America, April 1. Slurping Turtle will be showing the show on a large screen for the occasion. The secret ingredient menu will be available a la carte once the item is revealed on the show (approx after 9 PM). Food nerds welcome! Obviously massive food porn to eat your heart out to and support Chicago’s finest! 116 W. Hubbard.

History, Dishes, Drinks: Dinner Tales @ Blackbird

Veal Sweetbreads from Blackbird - Simple, beautiful, perfection.

What an awesome event! Dinner Tales is a one-of-a-kind culinary event that happens on one night only by Tasting Table and Citi®. And the entire purpose of the evening is to provide a background of the selected restaurant’s history through dishes and stories for the people who are involved and know it best. Sounds amazing, interesting, and above all – DELICIOUS. We’re so excited to say that on Tuesday, March 20, Dinner Tales is on at Paul Kahan‘s West Loop hotspot, Blackbird. The current team at Blackbird, chef de cuisine David Posey, pastry chef Bryce Caron and mixologist Lynn House, along with Paul Kahan, will be in house for this amazing celebration – a night full of history and food. Don’t miss it – buy tickets! Your ticket gets you signature cocktails and canapés, courses paired with a well-chosen wine, and a special gift. See the night’s menu here. And more info on the Dinner Tales @ Blackbird event, here.

Never Too Much of a GOOD THING: Do-Rite Donuts Opens in Loop

Bacon + Donuts = LOVE @DoRiteDonuts

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again! DONUTS ARE THE NEW CUPCAKES. We learned via Grub Street Chicago, that THIS morning @ 6:30 AM, Do-Rite Donuts opened in the Loop, attached to Petterino’s on Randolph. Francis Brennan and Jeff Mahin are the masterminds behind the latest addition to the doughnut line-up, bringing Lettuce Entertain You into the mix. And they’ve got some SERIOUS goodies in store: ranging from “gourmet” doughnuts (peanut butter + jelly + peanut better mousse topping) and “old-fashioned” cake doughnuts (topped with Tahitian vanilla or Valhrona chocolate) –> SO MUCH YUM. Definitely the next stop on our doughnut train. 50 W. Randolph.

NOW OPEN: Estate Ultra Bar is Rollin’ on the River
