Rob Levitt

Beginning this week, we’ve added a bunch of stuff to the food section, with this issue featuring everything from an attempt to poison Grant Achatz to reports of a man wielding a cleaver.

• In Omnivorous, Mike Sula gets the scoop on former Mado chef Rob Levitt’s plans for a butcher shop.
• Kate Schmidt reports on the goings-on of the restaurant industry, including the closing of Drinks Over Dearborn and the opening of Pete Crowley’s Haymarket Pub & Brewery, in the new column Morsels.
• Sula checks out the Korean tacos at Del Seoul, while Philip Montoro tracks down the rare Goose Island Bourbon County Vanilla Stout.
Michael Gebert and I challenge Grant Achatz to cook with the poisonous seed kluwak kupa—and he accepts (graciously willing to overlook my last project involving him)—in the new feature Key Ingredient.
• In the listings are more than a dozen restaurants with charcuterie.
