The Harmonica Hoedown pays homage to a mighty little instrument

Where: Martyrs, 3855 N. Lincoln

    At Kitsune, Iliana Regan harnesses her creativity with gorgeous dishes, top-notch ramen
    Review: Kitsune 4229 N. Lincoln Ave. Rating: !! 1/2 stars (out of four) The good news is the restaurant ceiling didn't fall on my head. When I dine at chef Iliana Regan's restaurants, weird things happen. When I reviewed Regan's Elizabeth, I went to the restroom, and when I closed the door, ceiling tiles fell on my head.
