    The Mount Prospect Journal reports that Salsa Street Fiesta Grill will move into the space formerly occupied by Truco Taqueria at Randhurst. They've got outlets in Sleepy Hollow, Chicago, and Palatine but I don't see a report here.

    The menu on the website looks at least one notch above standard tex-mex (points deducted for ugly website with PDF menus)

    The owner of Porkchop barbecue restaurants is opening a seafood spot in Hyde Park.
    Jovanis Bourgoub's latest venture, Red Fish, Bleu Fish, will offer seafood dishes from the Mediterranean to New Orleans and the Pacific Islands, such as crab cake sliders, baked lobster tail, ceviche, paella and a seafood boil.

    Looks like Pasadita's once-bold expansion plans have officially come to an end. The sign is gone from the Pasadita Express on Irving Park and Richmond and the windows are covered, leaving only one Ashland Avenue location open.

    Great to have another bistro similar to Miramar right in my backyard. Photos look great on Facebook. Looking forward to it, thanks for the heads up Dave.

    Mozzarella Store, a new chain of cheese shops, is opening its first location across from the old Chicago Water Tower. Visitors will be able to buy cheese, eat pizza and watch mozzarella and burrata being made.

    From the horrible name [IMHO] alone I just knew this had to be a chain, and the Crane's article confirms it:

    The store is the creation of Italian entrepreneur Antonio Somma. ... Somma plans ultimately to open 20 to 30 Mozzarella Store shops around the country...

    Too bad we can't have a real cheese monger, like Pastoral, in that space. Wow, you can watch them make cheese, something for the tourists I guess. Reeks of the person making pasta in the front of the Olive Garden.

    I was going to post the same information after visiting Arclight at New City the other day. This location sure has taken forever to open.

    Las Cuatro Perlas has opened at 3300 W. Montrose in Chicago. It appears to be another Nayarit seafood restaurant in a series that have been in this location in the years since Las Delicias moved out. Their website is basically a place holder and is nearly useless.
