Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen grilled chicken salad features corn, cilantro, edamame, tortilla strips, and an agave-lime vinaigrette.
Doc B’s Opens: New Gold Coast resto Doc B’s makes diners feel right at home despite its 110-seat dining room. The brainchild of restaurateur Craig Bernstein, Doc B’s is the perfect weekday lunch spot with a quick takeout counter or full-service seating, and a constantly-changing menu of fresh dishes like a housemade veggie burger with kale slaw and Umami glaze or a Mediterranean jumbo lump crab salad with roasted red peppers and basil vinaigrette. 100 E. Walton St., 312-626-1300
Bistronomic’s Beaujolais Wine Dinner: Chef Martial Noguier of Bistronomic prepares a three-course prix-fixe dinner to celebrate this season’s Beaujolais Nouveau wine release on November 21; unlike most other wines, the Gamay grape wine is made for immediate consumption. Noguier’s menu features dishes like housemade foie gras and chicken liver terrine, a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich with honey truffle butter, or steak frites with a fitting Gamay reduction. Available from 5-10 p.m. Reserve a $39/person seat by calling the resto at 312-944-8400. 840 N. Wabash Ave.
Baker & Nosh’s Expansion: Uptown purveyor of handmade breads and fine cheeses, Baker & Nosh expanded into a neighboring space this month—and increased the menu options along with its added square footage. Seasonal items like tasty bacon chive asiago scones supplement other new offerings, like Zarlengo’s Gelato and Italian Ice, La Colombe Pure Black Gelato Floats, and a larger selection of cheese and charcuterie. 1303 W. Wilson Ave., 773-989-7393
Vivo’s Blackhawks Menu Items: With its close proximity to the Blackhawks’ home ice, it only makes sense that West Loop Italian resto Vivo would offer a hockey-inspired promotion on appetizers. Mention “Blackhawk” during home games and enjoy that week’s honorary dish on the house: options alternate between black polenta with calamari, black linguini with shellfish, and mozzarella with black truffle. 838 W. Randolph St., 312-733-3379
