RIVER NORTH/LINCOLN PARK/WEST LOOP—After launching the beverage program and introducing a small batch Fernet, SideDoor beverage director Andrew Macker left to become the director of operations for both Viaggio restaurants. He says he's making his own Fernet there too. [EaterWire]

LINCOLN PARK—Former Kabocha sous chef Jon Keeley is the new executive chef at both Gemini Bistro and Rustic House, replacing Jason Paskewitz. Don't expect major changes, although he has launched a family fried chicken special on Sundays and is kicking off a new brunch on Easter. [Chicago Mag]

PILSEN—Although no additional staff originally planned to leave Nightwood following Jason Vincent's exit, it turns out that executive sous chef Benjamin Lustbader will exit after the transition is complete as well. [EaterWire]
