Game-changer tacos
Tropical Smoothie Cafe has a new flavor in the form of hot eats -- fish and chicken tacos. Choose grilled tilapia or grilled chicken and top it with Caribbean salsa, mango and pineapple, jicama, red peppers, jalapeno and cilantro, served in a flour tortilla and topped with a chili-lime cilantro spread and lettuce. Now through the end of March, grab two tacos for $4.99 or add a side and soda for $5.99. You also can't go wrong with the new smoothie flavor -- passion fruit.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe has locations in Barrington, Arlington Heights, Lincolnshire, Huntley and Chicago. tropicalsmoothiecafe.com.

Check the chalkboard
The chef has spoken at Pinstripes with new menu items highlighted on a rotating basis. Now through March 6, executive chef Cesar Gutierrez will list his recommended dishes on a chalkboard. Entries may include the White Marble Farm Grilled Pork Chop or barbecue chicken pizza. Beer lovers may take to the Green Line Pale Ale -- a good potential pairing. Or try PB&J Gelato off the kids menu.
Pinstripes has locations in Oakbrook, South Barrington and Northbrook. pinstripes.com.
