SOUTHEAST: Looks like the metal bar at Aaron Barnett's soon-to-open St. Jack will pack some heavy-hitters: Kyle Webster (who most recently revamped Metrovino's cocktail program) and Bluehour alum Tommy Klus will be shaking up cocktails at the French bistro.
SOUTHEAST: Tastebud has christened Wednesday nights "Chicken Dinner Nights," with three preparations of wood-fired and roasted chicken and comforting sides like mashed potatoes, cornbread pudding, and mustard greens. Chickens will be cooked in "limited number" each night.
PEARL DISTRICT: Another Do-Gooding Dealfeed to get that holiday spirit going: Bring an unwrapped gift or gently used toy to Fratelli e Bar Due's drive for Children's Relief Nursery, get a free serving of "holiday-inspired" gelato.
