The Aviary, the Alinea Group’s world-renowned cocktail bar on Fulton Market, will delve into weekend brunch service for the first time on Saturday. Executive chef Dan Perretta and team will roll out all-inclusive services that feature five food stations with a raw bar, “giant” crudites, waffle cones, the unique avocado toast pictured above, and plenty of drinks including a bloody Mary fountain. Reservations are available on Tock for this weekend and next, which cost $60-75 per person, in two windows: 10:00 a.m. until noon and 12:45 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.

— Wrigleyville revelers have a new rooftop bar to drink at. Moe’s Cantina unveiled its long-awaited spot this week after revealing renderings last spring. Check out a couple photos of it here.

Native Foods Cafe, the Chicago-based fast-casual vegetarian restaurant chain, was acquired by a private-equity firm based in St. Louis, Nation’s Restaurant News reports. The sale could lead to more expansion for the brand, which currently has 13 restaurants in four states.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken is participating in a fundraiser tomorrow to raise money to keep immigrant families together. Ownership of the Eater 38 restaurant, in partnership with the James Beard Foundation’s Food Policy Advocacy team, will donate 10 percent of their sales tomorrow to RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), which raises funds for family reunification and bond fees.

Frunchroom, the interesting Portage Park spot that specializes in elevated takes on breakfast and lunch deli dishes and is currently on the Eater Chicago Heatmap, started dinner service this week. Check out the menu here, which is BYOB.

— And finally, Wendell Carter Jr., the Bulls’ first-round pick in last night’s NBA Draft, is still learning about Chicago. But he does know one very important thing: “I know they got great pizza.”
