Israel-Idonije-sm.jpgRegardless if the Bears do well on the field, one player is setting up an off-field backup plan in the restaurant biz. Israel Idonije is partnering up with chef Alain Njike (Charlie Trotter's, NoMI) to open Alain's, an African-inspired Southern-influenced American restaurant in the South Loop at 1355 S. Michigan. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with items like macaroni and cheese souffle, blackened catfish and shrimp and grits. [Red Eye]
