What You Need to Know About the Chicago Dining Scene This Week

Openings

Start fasting now: All-you-can-eat hot pot has arrived on Argyle. Sea Food Hot Pot (1130 W. Argyle St.) opened last week in the old Seaworld Food Market space. $27 nets your choice of over 70 items, from fish balls to shrimp and dumplings. For $37, you can upgrade to primo fare: Think live lobster. It’s BYOB and there’s karaoke in the back room—and parties of 15 or more get two hours at the mic, gratis.

An ivy-trussed food truck called the Doorstep has set up shop at the intersection of Ashland Avenue, Milwaukee Avenue, and Division Street. Run by a gaggle of Alinea Group alums, the year-round truck targets Blue Line commuters with breakfast, sandwiches, and Bow Truss coffee. Expect dinner service in the not-so-distant future.

Morsels

Bon Appétit released their annual list of the ten best new restaurant openings in the country, and in what we’re taking as a personal affront, not one of the four Chicago-based semifinalists made the cut—not Boeufhaus, Pub Royale, Monteverde, or Roister. Rude.

If you’re struggling to score a reservation at Stephanie Izard’s Chinese hot spot, Duck Duck Goat (857 W Fulton Market, West Loop, 312-902-3825), you can still taste the food by popping over to Duck Duck Ta’Go, the restaurant’s new walk-up carryout window open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily (for now).
