WEST LOOP—avec's brunch service begins Sunday, July 21 at 10 a.m., running until 2 p.m. Chef de Cuisine Perry Hendrix will offer dishes such as torrejas (Spanish-style French toast), while pastry chef Dana Cree serves up Dutch baby pancakes and danishes. Of course you can't have brunch without alcohol, so look for a harissa bloody mary or a seasonal bellini. [EaterWire]

LOGAN SQUARE—Kikusui Sakes' President Daisuke Takasawa will be the guest of honor for events at Yusho and Billy Sunday on July 18. Starting at Yusho from 9–11 p.m., Kikusui sakes will be paired with small plates for $20. Then head over to Billy Sunday at 11 p.m. to sample a la carte cocktails from mixologist Alex Bachman. Call Yusho to RSVP at (773) 904-8558. [EaterWire]

DOUGHNUT DELIVERY—All Glazed and Infused locations are now offering delivery through Grubhub. You can order up to a dozen assorted doughnuts ($29.50) as well as coffee, orange juice and milk for a $5 delivery fee. [Chicagoist]

LAKEVIEW—Jim Burke has resurrected Witts, re-opening the bar less than two weeks ago. Burke has worked in the bar industry for nearly 15 years and wanted to open a "Cheers"-esque place, something "comfortable, nice" and "clean;" and he wants "to be known for value." The food menu promises large portions, such as a Southwest Texas brisket "sammich" and "3 Napkin Reuben." [DNAinfo]
