WEST LOOPAntoine Cedicci, the owner of the now-shuttered Pane Caldo, is opening Alimentari, an Italian small-plates and wine-focused restaurant at 621 W. Randolph on Monday. Look for wood burning pizzas, cured meats, pastas, meat, fish and more. Here's the full menu. [EaterWire/Thrillist]

LAKEVIEWMilt's Kosher BBQ is looking to open at 3413 N. Broadway. Note the "kosher" in the name, so no pork of any kind on the menu. They're apparently hoping to have booze and will be pre-pay style on Sabbath (sundown Friday to sundown Saturday) since religious Jews can't exchange money on that day. [EveryBlock]
