Mini-review: Storefront Company 1941 W. North Ave. 773-661-2609 Rating: !!! (out of 4) Off to a good start The scene: Wicker Park's newest restaurant has the same owners as Debonair Social Club, but it couldn't be more different. They're both located in the Flat Iron Building, but where Debonair is all black paint, dark dance floors and PBR-clutching scenesters, Storefront Company is white-washed and light-filled. Young couples from the neighborhood dined next to wine-sipping white hairs - perhaps they're loyal Food & Wine magazine subscribers who...

*** (out of four) No sense burying the story here: The French dramedy “The Intouchables” has earned more than $300 million worldwide, but several American critics have alleged racism. On some level, the movie (based on a true story) does focus on a Senegalese man named Driss (Omar Sy) and the liveliness he adds to the life of rich, white paraplegic Philippe (Francois Cluzet). Driss brings Philippe to pierce his ear and teaches his older, squarer employer about the wonders of Earth, Wind and Fire.

Eggy's 333 E. Benton Place. 773-234-3449 Rating: !!! (out of 4) Sometimes a great burger can be hard to find. In the case of recently opened Eggy's, it is actually the restaurant itself that can be tricky to locate. This new diner is located in the Lakeshore East complex hidden away just north of Millennium Park, which one can find by following these simple instructions: Walk east on Randolph Street past the Aon Center, veer left at the sign for Village Market, descend to the lower level at the end of the plaza and then walk out onto the sidewalk to find Eggy's.

Review: Dragon Ranch Moonshine & BBQ, 441 N. Clark St. 312-955-1900. Rating: 3.5 (out of four) Heating up What do barbecued ribs, Asian spices, Mason jar moonshine cocktails and Billy Dec have in common? They're all in the mix at the latest hangout from Rockit Ranch, the group that opened Rockit Bar & Grill eight years ago in River North and followed it up with subterranean club The Underground and Asian restaurant Sunda in the same neighborhood. Can they make it all work?
