Tonight, after months of delay, Nella Pizzeria Napoletana opens with a full bar, antipasti and salads, and pizza from Nella Grassano, the original pizzaiola at Spacca Napoli. Lunch starts Monday. A second location on Taylor Street is in the works for February.

More new places after the jump:

Yesterday Bakin' & Eggs, a Lincoln Park breakfast-and-lunch spot from French Pastry School grads affiliated with Lovely Bakeshop, opened its doors, offering bacon-centric items like waffles with the bacon cooked in as well as baked goods like quiche and onion tart. It's BYO.

RB Grille opened Monday in the former dining room of River North’s Rock Bottom Brewery, offering a pricier steak-house-style menu and a large wine list in addition to the full bar and house-made brews. Lunch starts next week. The old menu—also slated to be tweaked—will continue to be featured on what's now called the "pub side"; lunch there is weekdays-only beginning next week.

Delightful Pastries, a Jefferson Park European-style bakery offering Polish and French treats plus savories like pierogi, opened a second location in Old Town last Friday. It will also be one of 25 multiethnic vendors at the indoor Chicago French Market, set to open in the West Loop on November 30.
