'Chicago Chef Week' Returns . . .

Soon we can look forward to Chicago Chef Week, happening March 18-23.

Organized by the Boka Restaurant Group (Balena, Boka, Girl & The Goat, GT Fish & Oyster, Perennial Virant), the fourth-annual affair gives chefs an opportunity to showcase signature items on their menus. And of course, diners get deals: It's $22 (lunch) or $39 (dinner) for a three-course, prix-fixe meal at most spots.

If you're a big fan of Sterling Field, the talented bartender over at Sable Kitchen & Bar, you'd better head there by Saturday because that's his last day.

He's signing off to join Paul McGee, who recently left The Whistler to take charge of the cocktail programs at Lettuce's latest projects, RPM Italian and Bub City.
