Openings

Last week: The owners of El Gallo Bravo in Albany Park have produced Autentico 5 de Mayo (3223 N. Clark St., 773-880-0082), open 24 hours a day for American breakfast food and Mexican tacos, enchiladas, and flautas.

Friday, 4/5: The team behind Chicago Curry House will serve traditional Nepalese and Indian cuisine at Nepal House (1301 S. Michigan Ave., 312-922-0601).

 

Morsels

David Burke plans mini sandwiches in the old JBar space at 610 North Rush Street, with help from Primehouse chef Rick Gresh.

Pleasant House Bakery owners Art and Chelsea Jackson are opening a new location this spring—and the location is a mystery.

Tickets for Alinea through the end of July went on sale Monday. Snap up seats while you can.

Wicker Park’s Big Star is expanding both its indoor and outdoor operations, adding patio seating to an adjacent parking lot and leasing the 1,500-square-foot space next door. Let’s hope this development shortens the two-hour wait time.

Harper Court in Hyde Park will gain not only a Park Tavern and Ja’ Grill, but also a 2,500-square-foot second location for Porkchop this summer.
