Friday Foodie Links: Hello, Goodbye

Goodbye: One of our favorite Madison Restaurant, Restaurant Magnus is changing its menu from Brazilian/Pan-Latin to Norwegian! It seems the Brazilian chef has left, and that since the owners and sous-chef are all Norwegian they thought they would make a go of a new Scandinavian menu. While we’re sure Norwegian food will appease some, we are not pleased. The new menu starts on June 1, so try to get some chimichurri while you still can.

However, we are heartened to hear that Chicago’s reigning king of the Mole, Geno Bahena is going to be opening a new restaurant on Monday called Los Moles, specializing in nothing but mole! The restaurant is located at 3140 N. Lincoln Ave.

vietnamBon Bon
2333 W North Ave
Chicago, IL

Bon Bon, a new Chicago Vietnamese restaurant has been making the rounds in the blogosphere as a new place for Bánh mì. Bánh mì are Vietnamese hoagie sandwiches, with a variety of meat choices (typically pork, or pate) served on a French baguette with a spicy slaw. While there are bunch of places offer Bahn Mi, Bon Bon is also unique in that it offers these little Vietnamese treats outside of the Argyle corridor. According to the Menu at Menupages all of the sandwiches come in at a mere $3.95. We can’t wait to check it out!

Anyone been there?
