Though a tad on the sceney side, Chicago Magazine's Morsels consistently provides excellent inside info on Chicago restaurants.
And we're featured this edition.
There's also a snippet on Alpana Singh, the new host of Check Please! (premieres October 15).

A Message to You, Rudi
Theres a hilarious string of posts on Chowhound.com that revolve around the question: Is Rudi (Peter Rudiger, of Rudis Wine Bar, which closed in 2001) alive or dead? Several chowhounds report that Rudi suffered a fatal heart attack, and one claims a friend was invited to his wake; another said he recently ran into the guy on the street. Apparently, Rudiger loved a good joke, and no ones seen an obituary yet. Start with [BROKEN LINK REMOVED] and judge for yourself.
