CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – PORTAGE PARK, LINCOLN PARK, SOUTH LOOP, GOLD COAST, NAPERVILLE/EVANSTON/OAK PARK

PORTAGE PARK

The Olympics have treated you to every sport imaginable. Except for oyster shucking. Absolutely no oyster shucking. None. Well, at least the spirit of competition is alive this weekend at Frontier, where you can go crazy on some oysters for $10. Bonus: no tape delay.  Check it out at Frontier on Sunday, August 12.

LINCOLN PARK

A year and a half ago, plagued with what appeared to be a sinus infection and recurring low energy, Ed O'Brien had his doctor run a number of tests to find out why. O'Brien, a former Panera Bread manager, stopped eating foods with gluten (a protein found in rye, barley and all types of wheat) and spent a year developing the fast-casual dining spot Bountiful Eatery. The eatery, which O'Brien describes as "very red, very bright and very modern," uses locally grown, organic ingredients whenever possible.

SOUTH LOOP

A reason to go to the South Loop this weekend: Wagyu beef and hibiscus cocktails. Introducing Alain's, a cove of exotic spices and Midwestern know-how, just opened.

Chef Alain Njike (Trotter's, Park 52)-with Israel Idonije's backing-has created a spot perfect for those dates when you're craving someplace just slightly on the exotic side. Despite the hints of exoticism, you'll recognize everything on the menu.

GOLD COAST

Meet Hash House a Go Go, your new go-to diner for lifesaving midnight breakfasts in the Gold Coast, just opened. You can have morning breakfasts and evening dinners here, too. Just know that you'll be entering a place that looks like a farmhouse where the farmer went to culinary school and then joined a biker gang.

NAPERVILLE/EVANSTON/OAK PARK

The NorthShore University HealthSystem is donating $1.8 million to support the establishment of a new federally qualified community health center to serve low-income patients in Evanston and Skokie. The grant to Evanston was one of 219 new grants nationwide and one of 11 in the State of Illinois that were included in this year's federal budget. The community health care model has been shown to reduce the use of costlier providers of care, playing a key role in the objective of reducing the nation's health care bill.
