- Fine-dining German food is coming to Chicago, and boy are we excited. D.A.S. and Radler will combine the talents of Vie chef Nathan Sears, Chef/Owner Paul Virant and partner Adam Hebert. Radler will be a Bavarian-style beer hall with pub-type fare, while D.A.S. will be a small, fancy space nestled within the larger Radler. A little confusing, but it's probably a good business decision in a city not used to upscale German food. Don't get too excited yet - they won't be opening until 2013.
- Schwa was hit by vandals! Eater reported yesterday that the front of Schwa was tagged with swastikas. Very not cool - and oddly specific. Most of the time, restaurant graffiti is pretty much the same as all other graffiti. Hopefully, it'll get painted over soon and Schwa can return to whatever passes for normal around there. Eater has a photo - we'd call for comment, but... it's Schwa.
- We were so excited about the best burger thing that we missed this other tidbit on Bon Appetit's blog - the opening date for Little Goat. It's November 15th. Start standing in line now. Rob Katz, head of Boka group, also confirmed that the Izard chicken concept was coming eventually, but that there were no specifics available yet. One thing at a time, Steph.
