UKRAINIAN VILLAGE—And then there were two. The original La Pasadita location (opened 1976) on 1141 N. Ashland shuttered last week due to a $1000 rent hike, signaling the end of an era of sorts. The two cult taquerias across the street, as well as the four La Pasadita Express locations, will remain open. [EaterWire]

WICKER PARK—The North Avenue brunch spot Birchwood Kitchen has released a new winter menu of brunch fare, starters and salads, and sandwiches like croque vert and turkey sloppy joe with apple slaw. There's also a new dinner menu coming soon. [EaterWire]

EVANSTON—Scotch fans take note. Quince and Macallan are teaming up for a $75 four-course dinner paired with 10-year, 12-year, 15-year, and 17-year single malt scotches, lead by a Maccallan brand ambassador. Dishes include smoked sturgeon and roquefort ravioli, call Quince for reservations. [EaterWire]

LOGAN SQUARE—Is Brand BBQ closed? Eyewitnesses report paper-covered windows and a "closed for remodeling sign." No word if they're reopening or if the space will turn into something completely new. [EaterWire]
