Update on the plan to revive Trader Vic's in Chicago: on Tuesday, February 7th Harry Caray's Restaurant will go Polynesian, serving food from the Trader Vic's restaurant menu only for that day. The occasion: the Trader Vic's president is flying to Chicago to pass the torch (figuratively and literally) to Harry Caray's, which will be overseeing the opening of the new Trader Vic's Chicago location sometime next year. Along with the torch, Harry Caray's will also get the Trader Vic's Mai Tai recipe, which will be served in all three Harry Caray restaurant locations at least until Trader Vic's opens. (thanx to Robert for the tip)
