Lots of new-restaurant ground covered in Food & Drink this week: Martha Bayne found that the cocktails trump the small plates at Sable. Anne Spiselman thinks Masu Izakaya bucks an alleged Japanese gastropub trend. And I looked for needles in the haystacks at Benny’s Chop House and Aldino’s

And there’s more: meticulous dissections of the food at Accanto, Ciao Napoli Pizzeria, Corner 41 Bar & Grill, Dee’s PLace, Delhi 6, Elly’s Pancake House, Geisha Sushi & Lounge, Got Spaghetti?, J. Wellington’s, Leo’s Coney Island of Chicago, and M Burger, from a motley scrum of scribes.
