Burgundy Snail Dinner at Blackbird; Reza's Lawsuit Over; More

WEST LOOP—On May 22, Blackbird is throwing a dinner revolving around the "kobe beef of snails"—the burgundy snail. The five-course dinner, in conjunction with national escargot day, pairs the snails with white burgundy wine for $125. [EaterWire]

ANDERSONVILLE/RIVER NORTH/OAK BROOK—That Reza's lawsuit is no more. One brother, Joseph Toulabi, is now forbidden from coming within a mile of a Reza's restaurant by his brother Reza Toulabi via the Cook County Circuit Court. The case has been dismissed. [CRED]

CHICAGOLAND—Chipotle news! Eating at any Chicagoland Chipotle on Saturday benefits the Green City Market until they reach $20,000. And on Monday, Chipotle is launching their "fancy" margarita at 38 local locations—it's made with Patron and Cointreau and runs $6.95. [EaterWire]

HOMER GLEN—Speaking of fancy, a French restaurant is coming to Homer Glen, focusing on a menu that's 70 percent unique crepes like caviar and duck. La Crepe Bistro is scheduled to open Wednesday at 13957 S. Bell Road. [Trib]
