Openings

Say oui to ice cream at Amorino (838 N. State St., Gold Coast, 312-266-7466), the Paris–based chain making its Chicago debut. The place is known for its iconic flower-shaped cones of intensely flavored gelato.

Bin 36 pours its way into a new location (161 N. Jefferson St., West Loop, 312-995-6560), with an updated menu, wine cocktails, and plenty of cheese.

Morsel

There was heartbreaking news last night: Homaro Cantu, the 38-year-old chef and culinary wizard behind Moto and Berrista, was found dead in an apparent suicide. Today, dining editor Penny Pollack wrote a remembrance of her first meal at Moto in 2004, and we also reposted a January 2005 story spotlighting Cantu as one of the city’s game-changing “techno-chefs.”
