LOGAN SQUARE—A BYO Mediterranean option opened last week in Logan Square. Boustan Mediterranean Cafe, from the owners of Noble Square's Arabia Cafe & Hookah Lounge and El Souk in the Gold Coast, holds 120 seats underneath Suite 25 on Milwaukee Avenue. Look for lafa bread wraps, appetizers, entree plates, omelettes, and more at all three meals. Boustan was originally named Zaytoon but changed its name because of a "conflicting situation with another Zaytune." [EaterWire]
