Time for another round of new restaurant reviews. This week in Food & Drink, in addition to the featured roundup of Trader Vic's ("a hoot"), La Trattoria del Merlo ("credible"), and Farmerie 58 ("half on track"), there are ten new restaurant appraisals, authored with love, for your consideration.
David Hammond did a double shot of Rogers Park West African at Cafe Senegal and French African Restaurant le Conakry. Martha Bayne followed ex-Tomboy/Speakeasy jefa Jody Andre to Briejo in Oak Park. Kate Schmidt implores her neighborhood to keep Century Public House alive and well. Gary Wiviott and Julia Thiel called bullshit on the sushi at Sanook and Shiso, respectively. Ann Spiselman snarked at the empty Sortie Lounge, where the chef nevertheless "has talent," and my time at the Counter almost made up for time wasted at Monticchio and Taami.
