Armitage, 135 N. Clinton, 10 E. Delaware), and that's only the "first wave." They hope to have double-digit locations here in the next two years. [Crain's]

LAKEVIEW—Joy of Kosher magazine named Milt's Barbecue for the Perplexed 2013's best kosher restaurant in the country. It opened on Broadway about a year ago. [Joy of Kosher]
