Atmosphere Changes at Quay; DMK BBQ Has a Name

RIVER EAST—Nick O'Meara is the new general manager at Quay, replacing the departed Zak Dich, who had run the front of the house since the massive restaurant opened in July 2011. Owner Jesse Boyle says he wants "stronger energy" in the dining room and calls it an "atmosphere move." Look for changes in music, style and ambiance moving forward. [EaterWire]

EVANSTON—Found is opening a 25-seat sidewalk patio and a new "all-day dining" (essentially weekend lunch, Friday-Sunday 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) menu on May 3. It'll include shareable plates, "knife and fork" sandwiches, flatbreads, entrees, and new cocktails. [EaterWire]

RIVER NORTH—Chef Nathan Huntington and the management group that have been running Argent have left the Dana Hotel restaurant. It's been quite a road for the restaurant in less than a year of existence. [Grub Street]
