Celebrate Spring With Rooftop Tomato Sushi

Can it be true? Is spring really here? Just in case, it's best to get to Homestead on the Roof immediately. The seasonal restaurant reopens its rooftop garden and patio tomorrow and is introducing new dishes like tomato sushi and "pork chop and pie" for the occasion. And what an occasion it is.

Here's That DJ- and Cocktail-Fueled Earth Day Party You Were Asking About

It's not every day that you can watch performances from the likes of Kevin Krauter and Malcolm London while sipping Paul McGee's cocktails under the glass ceiling of Garfield Park Conservatory. In fact, Thursday is probably the only day at Land and Sea Dept.'s annual Earth Day benefit. No pressure, though.

A Burger-Slinging Food Truck Opens a Burger-Slinging Restaurant

Looks like Lucy's is moving up to the big leagues. The two-year-old food truck just christened its first actual restaurant in Humboldt Park. Stop by and raise a milkshake to the accomplishment, and maybe a spicy fried chicken sandwich. And a burger, too. Just keep raising things.

Now open, Lucy's, 1043 N California Ave, 312-675-8385

Kobe Ribeye Has Arrived to Put All Other Steaks to Shame
A CUT ABOVE

Kobe Ribeye Has Arrived to Put All Other Steaks to Shame

You've had ribeye. You've had Kobe beef. But chances are, you've never had Kobe ribeye. Time to change that, because Benny's Chop House is now the first steakhouse in the city to offer the elusive cut. It can be yours for $130 as long as supplies last. Which presumably won't be for very long.

A New Brunch Along the River Feels About Right

The Loop's new beer-and-mussels spot is about to become your new deviled-eggs-and-smoked-tasso-benedict spot. Fisk & Co.'s brunch menu is brimming with delights from land, sea and bar. Start with an Apex Predator Beermosa, then segue into some pork belly with poached egg frisée. Just the way the brunch gods intended.

Sat-Sun, 11:30am-3:30pm, Fisk & Co., 225 N Wabash Ave, 312-236-9300

What Else Is New

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.
