This month's issue features Newcity's "Big Heat: Chicago's Food & Drink 50," our annual celebration of our city's culinary culture. Food and drink editor David Hammond interviews our Chef of the Moment: Mariya Russell, head of Kumiko and Kikkō in the West Loop and the first black woman to receive a Michelin star. Elsewhere in this issue, a profile on the production that was not meant to be: Lyric Opera's epic mounting of Wagner's "Ring Cycle," which was laid low COVID-19. And while the city is currently under a shelter-in-place order, you can still see "Chameleon Blind," an installation by artist and activist Mara Baker, in vacant storefronts across the city. As we hope for a speedy return to business as usual, be sure to peruse some reviews and contemplate additional content at newcity.com.
