Allow Us to Introduce You to the Nutella Salad

It’s almost summer. Hence, two options for you:

1) Eat grilled romaine, micro celery and sunflower sprouts at Beatrix’s new Fulton Market location and grab-and-go market.
2) Say fuck it and get acquainted with chocolate-covered waffles and panzanella at the world’s first Nutella Café.

Both open today. Also, harder decision than it seems.

Now open, Nutella Cafe, 189 N Michigan Ave, 312-729-5186; now open, Breatrix and Beatrix Market, 834 W Fulton Market, 312-733-0370

CHICKEN BIG

Just a Great Big Fried Chicken Collaboration

Those fried chicken vixens at Honey Butter Fried Chicken are always tempting you with new takes on their birds. This time, they’ve invited Giant’s chef Jason Vincent to do the dirty work via a chicken strip sandwich covered in hot giardiniera. Damn you, fried chicken vixens.

DO THE DO

The Summer’s First Street Fest Is Finally Here

BRUNCH BETTER

The Lost Art of the Carving Station Isn’t So Lost Anymore

You look like you could use a beef tenderloin carving station. Good thing Maple & Ash’s new Sunday brunch has a beef tenderloin carving station, plus a maple glazed ham carving station, plus tableside ricotta angolotti. Yes, all of those are good things.

Sundays, 10am-2pm, $40, Maple & Ash, 8 W Maple St, 312-944-8888

A Cocktail-Filled Tribute to All Things Seinfeld
JERRY ON

A Cocktail-Filled Tribute to All Things Seinfeld

Muffin tops, big salads, cocktails by the name of Festivus and Canstandya. We speak, of course, of Seinfeld Night at Scofflaw, where the evening will bring together a collection of nine Seinfeld-themed drinks from past cocktail lists. Reruns are the best.

June 4, 11am-2am, Scofflaw, 3201 W Armitage Ave, 773-252-9700

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
