—The 2016 Pitchfork Music Festival, heading to Union Park from July 15-17, has a few new food options this year. Newcomers include Leghorn Chicken, the Donermen Truck, and Wow Bao, joining standbys Black Dog Gelato, Dia De Los Tamales, and more. The full vendor list is now live on the festival's website.

—A major change has come to Saint Lou's Assembly, 16" on Center's throwback cafeteria-style "meat and three" next to Moneygun in the West Loop. The restaurant has ditched the cafeteria setup, the Tribune reports, in favor of a full menu with table service. Saint Lou's opened in late March.

—One Off Hospitality's James Beard Award-winning cocktail lounge The Violet Hour has released a new summer menu under a new format. It's slimmed down to 22 seasonal cocktails broken down by preparation style with a separate section for the bar's classics. Read it in full below.

—There's a new lunch option for hungry shoppers and residents near the North and Clybourn corridor. Sono Wood Fired is now open for lunch service at 1582 N. Clybourn from Tuesdays through Sundays, serving flatbreads, wood-roasted sandwiches, salads and more.

The Gingerman Tavern, one of the few non-sports bars near Wrigley Field, changed its name to GMan Tavern.

Two, the acclaimed Midwestern farm-to-table restaurant on Grand Avenue in West Town, expanded with a new 32-seat dog-friendly sidewalk patio over the weekend.
