**November 4, look for Tulip Noir to open at the Old Towne Shopping Center on west 86th. Owner Dina Romay-Sipe will specialize in breakfast, lunch and an extensive tea menu. Carlos Salazar, a former line cook at Oakely's Bistro, will run the kitchen. Get there Monday-Friday since they're not open weekends.

**Is the end near for Dunaway's? No official word yet, but I've heard the same rumors you have about the venerable south side landmark. Sounds like they've had a tough financial go in recent weeks. Sadly, they're not the only fine dining restaurant we hear is struggling with the downturn. Update: Owner Jeff Dunaway denies the rumors are true and says they are absolutely not closing.
