Brennan & Mahin to Open 2 Spots in Lincoln Park

Dish reports that former L2O chef Francis Brennan and Jeff Mahin, chef-owner of Santa Monica's Stella Rossa Pizza Bar and M Street Kitchen, are opening two restaurants in the former Tilli's space at 1952 N. Halsted St. One will be a clone of Stella Rossa (under a new name), while the other will be a "California restaurant," by which I presume means more Wolfgang Puck than California Pizza Kitchen. Both projects are backed by Lettuce Entertain You.

This is not the first teaming of Brennan and Mahin. The pair are the driving force behind Do-Rite Donuts, which opened last February, kicking the gourmet doughnut competition into high gear. You can also watch Mahin compete on ABC's new cooking competition show "The Taste," which debuts Tuesday, Jan. 22. / February 24, 2014 1:15 AM

Treating yourself to Paddock club tickets is treating you to the best. You get to watch the race from aboard a beautiful , large luxury yacht where you will be among the who’s who of the world. Celebrities are known to acquire the F1 Paddock Club package, so there is no telling just who you may run into
