UKRAINIAN VILLAGE/RIVER NORTH—It's been quite a first year for Leghorn Chicken, the chef-driven fast food chain that's seen as the anti-Chick-Fil-A. Partner Chris Dexter chatted about hate-filled messages, their learning curve with fast food, and yes, 20,000 condoms.

AROUND TOWN—Ramen places are seemingly opening every week these days in Chicago, so Eater put eight to a public challenge via a Final Four-style ramen bracket. Round two just began so vote often and follow along.

AROUND TOWN—The April heatmap is out, and Scofflaw's Sink|Swim, Rural Society, and The Angry Crab joined the list of Chicago's hottest restaurants.

LINCOLN PARK—For the fourth year in a row, Grant Achatz's Alinea was named the world's best restaurant by private jet magazine Elite Traveler.
