I eat. I write. And there you have it.

Henri, the anticipated Michigan Avenue spot from the folks behind the Gage, opens Saturday. The restaurant, designed with inspiration from the work of architect Louis Henri Sullivan, will serve modern American fare with classic roots and a strong seasonal and regional influence.

The Gage's Dirk Flanigan serves as executive chef here too, so it's no surprise that game (elk, venison, quail, rabbit and the like) will be regular fixtures on the menu. Sample dishes include a vegetable tart, rabbit consomme with rabbit agnolotti and plats du jour such as bouillabaisse. The wine list focuses on biodynamic selections, and cocktails lean classic, with an entire section dedicated to wine-based cocktails.

In closing news, the Stew reports that CND Gyros, one of Streeterville's finest dives, will be serving its last round of cheese fries and cheap beer this weekend. Also recently shuttered: Hyde Park BYOB Cafe Florian.
