LOGAN SQUARE—Polanco, the latino steakhouse from veteran chef Cesar Reyes, has been softly open for a week but is holding grand opening ceremonies on Sunday, which is conveniently Cinco de Mayo too. They're serving prime rib tacos and bottomless house margaritas for $20 a head, as well as a host of $5 drink specials. [EaterWire]

RAVENSWOOD—Chez Simo Bistro is opening up a French themed restaurant in the former home of Cinnamon Cafe on 1968 W. Lawrence. Three other concepts recently went under in the location. [Patch]

NAVY PIER—Early bird tickets are now available for the upcoming Chicago Fine Chocolate & Dessert Show at Navy Pier for $15. This year's show takes place over a whole weekend (October 18-20) and features a slew of demonstrations, seminars, chocolate art galleries, a 1,000 pound chocolate life-size replica of the Blues Brothers, and of course chocolate tastings.

WICKER PARK—Not even open six weeks, Takito Kitchen is rolling out spring menu additions from chef David Dworshak. Seven new items include an Alaskan Halibut and chicken pepian tacos. [EaterWire]
