Park 52 (5201 S. Harper Court), that delightful Hyde Park eatery that's the latest creation from Jerry Kleiner (Gioco, Marche, Carnivale, Room21, etc.), is really trying to open on April 8. That's the goal, their publicist tells us, but you know how these things go.
Perennial (1800 N. Lincoln Ave.), a contemporary American restaurant from the dream team of Kevin Boehm and Rob Katz (Boka, Landmark), is set to open in early May now.
And Texas de Brazil (51 E. Ohio St.) brings South American flair to the Mag Mile when it also opens sometime in May. It's going into the old Virgin Megastore space, so you know this will be a massive project. They'll be doing Churrascuria-style serving here at this Brazilian steakhouse.
