This week on the Sauce podcast: Florentin, cicada-safe patios and more

This week on the Sauce podcast, Michelle and Meera talk about a few cicada-safe patios, including rooftops at the Moonrise Hotel in the Loop and Art Bar in Grand Center Arts District.

Also in the chat this week is a first look at Florentin, the new breakfast and lunch spot from Ben Poremba's Bengelina Hospitality Group in the Delmar Maker District. At Florentin, dishes like shakshuka and challah toasts – especially with a brown butter fried egg – shine on the savory side of the menu, while their creamy yogurt parfait with caramelized banana was a star on the sweet side.
