Restaurant News: Ruxbin Team To Open Mott Street, Parson's Chicken And Fish Coming In April

2013_3_7_Parsons.png - The team behind Longman and Eagle (Land and Sea Dept.) is opening a new fish and chicken shack in Palmer Square. Parson's Chicken and Fish will open in mid-April. Executive Chef Hunter Moore has worked at Girl and the Goat, Lula and Nightwood, and will serve up dishes like fried fish (obviously) and chorizo clam chowder. Details are still sparse, but we do know that the new restaurant will be located at 2952 W. Armitage.

- If you're a fan of Ruxbin, this is the news you've been waiting for. The team behind the wildly popular restaurant is opening a new spot later this spring. Mott Street, named both for the New York street and the Korean word for taste, will feature a variety of street foods, according to Time Out Chicago. "If there's a through-line to Edward's menu, it'll be food that you might find at a night market—that is, snacky foods that quell that specific brand of late-night hunger; hyperflavorful, sometimes-spicy dishes that set off the release of endorphins." If you want a preview, Mott Street will be serving up samples at the April 4 Fete Market.

- Chef Michael Kornick has signed another 10-year lease for Chicago standby MK, and it's time for some Spring Cleaning. Except in this case, spring cleaning means ripping out the entire bar and doing a new paint job. Chicago Magazine reports that the restaurant will be closed for three weeks in July for renovations before opening with a refreshed menu that includes both old favorites and newer small plate options.
