Mid-week Quick Links

• Paul Virant, of Vie in Western Springs, was named one of Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chefs.

• The Tribune has launched a foodblog of their own: The Stew.

• Moto's Homaro Cantu is interviewed CNet? Well, yeah, since it's about his printed food. [via]

Dish confirms that Pasteur, the beloved French-Vietnamese restaurant, will be closing so the owners can concentrate on their newer places, Simply It and Viet Bistro. No closing date was given.
