Ashok Selvam is the editor of Eater Chicago and a native Chicagoan armed with more than two decades of award-winning journalism. Now covering the world of restaurants and food, his nut graphs are super nutty.

Personal business brought Mick Jagger to Chicago last week and the Rolling Stones’ lead singer toured bars and restaurants in River North and Boystown. Jagger’s stops included Spiaggia, Roscoe’s Tavern, Three Dots and a Dash, and Brindille. Restaurant staff pulled out all the stops for the 74-year-old icon.

On Friday night, Jagger dined at Brindille. The restaurant received an inquiry from one of Jagger’s reps. He wanted a cool late-night vibe but wanted to remain comfy, according to a Brindille rep. Brindille sent Jagger’s team a menu before his visit for approval. Joined by three guests, Jagger ate squash soup, Dover sole, and drank beer. Jagger also recognized Brindille co-owner Carrie Nahabedian. The acclaimed chef previously worked as the executive chef at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, California. Other diners left him undisturbed as Jagger enjoyed his meal over the course of a few hours. Jagger also praised the restaurant’s artwork, Nahabedian said via a spokesperson. In this photo — shot by Michael Nahabedian (Carrie’s cousin and Brindille founder) — the rock ‘n’ roll legend seems interested in his smartphone.

After the meal, Jagger headed north to Boystown where he visited Roscoe’s. He watched Aja and Milk perform:

The next night, Jagger opted for Italian food at Spiaggia, the one-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant in the Gold Coast. A spokesperson said he ate the John Dory risotto, the Tutto il Coniglio (rabbit, pancetta, polenta, espresso carrot) and closed the meal out with the Miele dessert. Jagger on Saturday also visited Three Dots and Dash, the tiki bar in the same neighborhood, according to the Tribune. A Lettuce Entertain you rep said Jagger stopped by shortly after 11:30 p.m. with a group of six. They drank the bar’s signature $385 large-format Treasure Chest drink (it comes with a bottle of Dom Perignon). They left around 1 a.m., the spokesperson added.
