Shake Shack will not be moving into venerable Wicker Park music club Double Door's space, as the burger sensation's reps tell RedEye that "there is no truth to the claim." The Wicker Park icon is still facing eviction and its building may still change hands, however.

—Iliana Regan and Phil Tadros' highly-anticipated Bunny the Micro Bakery should finally open on Jan. 22, they announced on the establishment's Facebook page, as permits are secured and the oven is in place, Chicago magazine first reported. Ownership also announced an opening date last May but this one should be the real deal.

—Cult favorite Japanese chain Ramen Misoya's first city of Chicago location is already drawing lines, the Tribune reports. The Streeterville location opened in late December.

—You can now get Honey Butter Fried Chicken delivered to your door, as the restaurant launched delivery service this week via Caviar.

—In other ramen news: Furious Spoon, perhaps the busiest ramen spot in town, launched a Kickstarter to fund a new noodle machine for its forthcoming Logan Square location. Meanwhile, an Everyblock user spotted a stop work order for the space, but owner Anshul Mangal says it's because they're getting a different permit due to more construction than anticipated and they're on track for a late February or March opening.

—Chicago Police shut down three unlicensed bars on Thursday that they "deemed public safety threats" following shootings and other issues, according to the Sun-Times. One of the "social clubs," The Loft in Englewood, was the site of numerous incidents.
