• LTHForum is now ready to take recommendations for the next additions to their Great Neighborhood Restaurant List. The indispensable guide to the city is a must for adventurous eaters. We’d like to second the call for adding Edzo’s Burger Shop. [LTHForum]

• Lastly, Eater already has announced the winners of the first round of the Hottest Chef in Chicago. You can still get in on the action, as Round 2 begins tomorrow. [Eater]
