LINCOLN PARK—The original Argo Tea in Chicago (Sheffield and Armitage) is no more. Luckily there are 13 more around town, plus another coming in May at 871 N. Wabash. [Crain's]

GOLD COAST—In the mood for soft shell crab next month? If so, you're about to get your fill of it at deca. Starting tomorrow they're doing a different preparation with the crustacean every day in May. One of them is macadamia nut crusted with morels and white asparagus. [EaterWire]

LAKEVIEW—Another new concept is on its way to Ashland in Lakeview. This one will be a bar serving Argentinian small plates from the owner of Folklore and Tango Sur. [DNAinfo]

NEAR NORTH—There's been quite a horrible run of tragic events in the country lately, and the explosion in West, TX might have taken a backseat to the Boston Marathon bombing. Joe's Bar is giving back to the those in Texas, however, with Texas-themed specials on May 9 with a portion of the proceeds going to the first responders. There's also a concert that night, go to or the box office for tickets. [EaterWire]
