Re: “The Warbler sings its song for every kind of eater

New Asia's original owner was not running the restaurant from approx Dec'16-Aug'17, but upon reopening in the fall, the original owner/chef (Tiffany) is back. The food is back to the very good, original, quality.

Re: “A Logan Square pedestrian crash shows how difficult it can be to get justice after a driver flees

Even if they find the driver, it's highly likely that he or she is uninsured or under-insured (rare that a vehicle like that described was a business vehicle subject to business policy/assets). The only way to get compensation is if the victim has a policy that covers UM/UIM. I feel sorry for the guy, but I don't see how he's getting anything from an investigation.

Re: “Won Fun plays with Chinese food

The newer, less authentic places aren't being marketed to northsiders or suburbanites, but rather tourists and trendy residents of River North, Streeterville, and West Loop. The northside yuppie stereotype doesn't come to these places. It's the mainstreaming of foodie culture which has brought these marketable versions of cuisine out of Chinatown and even closer to dispensable incomes.

Re: “With Futatsuki, Chicago’s far north side has great ramen again

Anything south of Foster is not even remotely considered the far north side. This headline is Fake News.

Re: “The Gelato World Tour hits Millennium Park this weekend

Potential alternative for those who want gelato on a smaller scale:
- Massa on North Ave in Elmwood Park.
Just PRAY they have the banana fudge flavor ready before you show up! The best!
