CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – GOLD COAST, NORWOOD PARK, LAKEVIEW, LOOP, EVANSTON

GOLD COAST

Chicago's newest steakhouse is in the old Esquire Theater, gloriously restored and transformed into Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, an epic blockbuster of a Chicago meat palace, opening Saturday. This place is huge - emphasis on ginormous - with 32-ounce Wagyu tomahawk steaks and 1400 different wines to try. The best seats are the booths overlooking Oak Street. Should you choose a late night out, find your way to the third floor for martinis, truffled potato pierogies and mini deep-dish pizzas.

NORWOOD PARK

It's time to celebrate the 29th Annual Holiday House Tour with Norwood Park Historical Society.  The tour will be held Saturday, December 1, from 11am to 4pm, and begins at the Norwood Park Senior Center.  Advance ticket sales are available through Friday, November 30.  If you choose to stay in the area, head over to Victoria's 25th Annual Holiday Boutique & Café at the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House.  Admission is free if you attend the Holiday House Tour.

LAKEVIEW

Bar Pastoral, a snug, rustic cove of wine and cheese that's perfect for pre- and post-date canoodling, now open in Lakeview. This is from the guys behind Pastoral, the ones you've long admired for their superior cheesemongering. Before a movie at the Landmark, stop in for a glass of wine (they have 16 by the glass) or order a glass of Michigan bubbly (it's on tap) and a grilled cheese.

LOOP

Welcome to Tortoise Club, a seductive white-tablecloth ode to Chicago's good old days, opening Monday in River North. If the Chicago History Museum opened a quintessential Loop restaurant, it might look something like this. In general, you'll want to think of this place as your new playground to hobnob with power brokers or spend the evening at a two-seater in front of a roaring fire, splitting your pheasant pot pie.

EVANSTON

It's always a big question of what to do to keep the kids busy when they are home during the winter break.  This year Evanston's Recreation Division is offereing 13 different choices from December 26 through January 4.  With choices like Snow Science and Cold Cultures at the Ecology Center to Lego camps, there is plenty to choose for any age.
