Tribune & Time Out: Mother’s Day…Perhaps Al Fresco?

• Upscale Dim Sum at David Burke’s Primehouse and Shanghai Terrace, which Vettel deems mother-safe [Tribune]

• Downscale Dim Sum, probably just as enjoyable. But you can’t make reservations! [Tribune]

• A bunch of non-Dim Sum Mother’s Day options that may or may not still be available [Tribune]

• Monica Eng goes to Drew’s Eatery in Wicker Park North Center ; liked the dogs, but not the soups. Also, to whomever pays attention to this sort of thing: the number of forks awarded to restaurants in the “Cheap Eats” feature doesn’t show up online in either Firefox or IE. Just so you know! [Tribune]

• Outdoor dining! Includes newcomers like ZED451 and oldcomers like the Route 34 Drive-In outdoor movie theater in Earlville [TOC]

• Comparing the food at Cellular and Wrigley; the Sox come out ahead by an inch [TOC]

• Cynical Jerry Kleiner makes Park 52 just good enough for Hyde Park, rather than taking the effort to make it good, period [TOC]

• Cynical Tony Plum makes Cinners just good enough for Chicago, rather than taking the effort to make it good, period [TOC]

• Soft shell crabs lose their shells, and their lives, at various Chicago restaurants. We can’t all be winners in springtime! [TOC]
