RIVER NORTH—Carlo Lamagna has left his position as executive chef at Benny's Chop House.

WICKER PARK—Sweet Cakes Bakery has re-opened in Wicker Park after closing its previous location in Ukranian Village seven months ago.

GOLD COAST—Starting today, Hash House A Go Go will serve a single day and night brunch menu.
