The Chicago culinary scene is bigger in Texas. At least five Chicago cheftestants have been awarded the coveted “Top Chef: Texas” jacket in the latest season of the show, which premiered Wednesday night. The final slate of 16 cheftestants, which may include a sixth Chicago chef, likely will be revealed next week. In Wednesday's episode, some of the chefs worked with pig and rabbit to create their dishes. Yawn. It seems “Top Chef” has fallen into the “Project Runway” trap of repeating lame ideas for challenges.

Review: Fulton Market Kitchen 311 N. Sangamon St. 312-733-6900 Rating: 3 (out of four) Off to a good start A mix of art galleries and big-name restaurants mixed in with meatpacking plants is what makes the West Loop a destination. After living in the neighborhood for nearly a decade, Daniel Alonso (of Wicker Park tapas bar Black Bull) partnered up with former Victor Hotel owner Relu Stan to turn that space into his own mixed-media creation. Victor Hotel was a club, not a hotel, and Fulton Market Kitchen is on Sangamon Street, not Fulton, but stay with me here.

I have a theory about why I haven't gone utterly broke over the past couple years. It's not my judicious use of credit cards. It's not a budget spreadsheet, or even really a budget. I don't do math. I don't live in a hovel. What I do is cook. Not that I'm actually good at it, mind you. I and my loved ones shall not soon forget the pumpkin bread fiasco of fall '11, or that one time I put eggplant in everything because I contracted temporary amnesia and forgot that it is disgusting.

ROCKFORD  In the seven years that Ashley and Vanessa Kramer have been together, they have weathered glares as they held hands. Some people also have called Ashley, who sports a short haircut and prefers androgynous clothing, “sir.” Once, they were kicked out of a northern Virginia mall for kissing, they said. But on one February morning, they encountered one of their toughest obstacles in trying to become the couple they have longed to be: Chicago traffic. The Kramers woke at 3 a.m. to battle a slow-moving expressway to wait for hours for the...

Nearly a year after the City Council allowed food trucks to cook onboard, only a total of 13 have the required license to do so.

The seven new ones listed in the release are: Beaver's Donuts and Coffee, Giordano's, Cheesie's, Patty Wagon, Gelato D'Oro,...

What happened today? A federal judge in Chicago said same-sex couples don't have to wait until June to marry. That's when the measure legalizing gay marriages was to go into effect.   What happened before the decision? Two Illinois women who were in a civil union sued last year to challenge the start date; one of the them had been battling breast cancer and was told by a doctor she had little time to live. A judge granted the request and they wed in November. Later, the judge who on Friday did away with the June 1 start date ordered the Cook...

One of the most annoying things about the glut of "How to be a real man" articles on the internet (other than their continued insistence on trying to get dudes to wear dress shoes without socks) is that they don't always help with the remedial basics. Nowhere is this more apparent than with food. It's either "grill everything" or "make this nine-course tasting menu or you won't be able to satisfy your love and she'll leave you for her co-worker Steve who is the worst kind of dude because he roots for the Colts and says stuff like...
