RIVER NORTH—The first Chicago location of Rev Burger is now open and serving up gourmet burgers made from Angus beef free of hormones and antibiotics, Urban Daddy reports. The River North space seats 56 and features the type of burgers, hot dogs and chicken (as well as baked fries) that the first Carol Stream location has, but expands the menu to include Italian beef, wraps, meatless burgers, and 100 craft beers.

WRIGLEYVILLE—The fire that gutted Roadhouse 66's original location last October only inspired the owners to rebuild anew, and patrons of the original can officially visit them them up the street at 3478 N. Clark today. The space is decked out like a vintage bar and grill and features a menu that's upgraded from the original.
Brunch will feature banana bread French toast with cinnamon-vanilla batter and an existing smoker (leftover from previous tenant Sweet Baby Ray's) is yielding smoked chicken wings as well as smoked pork belly sliders. There's also a bison burger, bourbon-braised short ribs and much more. The new space seats 70 inside, 40 on the patio, and features 14 draft beers on tap. [EaterWire]
