Perennial Virant Taking Reservations; Dolinsky Offers Mayor Emanuel Foodie Tips; Johnny Rockets' 99¢ Milkshakes

LINCOLN PARK—While Perennial Virant doesn't have an official opening date, the restaurant will start taking reservations tomorrow with May 23 as the first possible date to book. So you can pretty much assume that's the hard opening, although they may open more quietly sooner. Call 312-981-7070 or use OpenTable. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERESteve Dolinsky wrote an open letter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was inaugurated this morning in Millennium Park. The Hound suggests ways Rahm can improve the culinary scene, including adding food trucks, giving Green City Market a permanent home and creating a true year-round indoor/outdoor market. [WBEZ]
