Karyn Calabrese serves raw vegan food in Lincoln Park, cooked vegan food in River North, and now at her latest spot—just a block off the meat-and-fish-heavy Greektown—some of both. This entails dishes meant to approximate crab cakes, scallops, short ribs, and fried chicken, as well as her usual uncooked creations, such as a hummus plate with raw pita. Slated to bow in mid-January, the sleek 115-seat space also boasts a small grab-and-go market and a bar, but the best selling point may be Calabrese herself, that ageless queen of holistic therapy and detoxification programs. 130 S. Green St.; 312-226-6155.
