Openings

Sarah Jordan, last spotted in the kitchen at the ill-fated Cicchetti, has surfaced—she’s running the ship at the reopened Johnny’s Grill (2545 N. Kedzie Ave., Logan Square), rebooting the longtime greasy spoon with some fancy, cheffy touches. The prices remain reasonable, though: You can get an Irish breakfast with back bacon and white and black pudding, among other things, for only $11.

Morsels

The Restaurant Formerly Known As Armour & Swift has a new name: Swift & Sons (1000 W. Fulton Market, West Loop). The Boka/B. Hospitality joint steakhouse project dropped the Armour part of the name after a request from Armour Ekrich Meats—now the name just pays homage to one historic Chicago meatpacker rather than two.

To celebrate two years in the Peruvian eats business, Tanta (118 W. Grand Ave., River North, 312-222-9700) will give anyone who dines in at the restaurant tonight free empanadas. And, to go with them, the spot will be marking down their pisco sours to $10.

As of today, Publican Quality Meats (825 W. Fulton Market, West Loop, 312-445-8977) is in the weekday breakfast game. From 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday-Friday, they’ll be offering an assortment of toasts (such as multigrain topped with peach butter and fromage blanc) and a bacon-filled breakfast burrito, among other items.
