STREETERVILLE— The Museum of Contemporary Art is getting a new restaurant but officials haven't revealed any details on their plans for it. It's part of $60 million in changes to the MCA. Works should be complete by May 2016. [Tribune]

AROUND TOWN— The Einstein Bros. Bagels at 3420 N. Southport Ave. and another at 5318 N. Clark St. are casualties of a 39-store company-wide closure of "underperforming" locations. Closing day is Tuesday, and parent company Einstein Noah Restaurant Group didn't provide of list of store closures. A suburban location in Glencoe will also bite the dust.
