STREETERVILLE—Fox & Obel reopened today at noon three days after being shut down by the health department. The gourmet grocery/cafe failed its sixth inspection in three years, this time cited for more than 200 fruit flies and 30 cockroaches. Will customers come back? [EaterWire]

LINCOLN PARK—Old Town-based La Fournette Bakery is opening a second location on Clark near Fullerton in roughly three weeks. The new one will only seat 10 indoors but 25-30 on a patio. [Crain's]

LITTLE ITALY—Mark Steuer, John Manion, Rob Levitt, and more big chefs are coming out to Three Aces on July 28 for the "Rock For Kids" benefit. Look for live blues, craft beer, and the chefs to use "different beasts." Call the restaurant for reservations. [EaterWire]

MUSEUM CAMPUS—Premier restaurants (Publican, Mercadito, more), cocktails, a dessert bar, live music, young philanthropists, and aquariums are coming together on July 27 at BLU, the Shedd Aquarium fundraiser. Click here for more information. [EaterWire]
