We wrote last week about former Wave chef Kristine Subido’s Filipino chicken house Pecking Order, which is set to open in late May.

We’ll have more about that market closer to its date, which is May 13.
• Crain’s reports that Mercadito Hospitality will open something in The Talbott Hotel this fall, replacing whatever’s there that no one ever noticed. This does not seem to typically be a problem for Mercadito’s concepts, like Tavernita, but it will be at least a couple of months before we know what it will be, apparently. [Chicago Business]
