CHICAGO—April 1. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined several celebrity chefs today to herald the beginning of the city's Protected Culinary Zone planning initiative. Under the program, selected areas of the city will be designated so that only the most selective of eating establishments can be located there.

Restaurants seeking to locate in one of the new zones will need to submit reviews from a short list of approved critics, and an application approved by a mysterious figure called "denizen." Final approval will be up to a committee of aldermen.

Officials with the city's Dept. of Cultural Affairs and Special Events will administer the zones, which are similar to the city's highly successful Protected Manufacturing Zones. The Dept. of Economic Development is said to be considering a similar system to set up Gold Mining Districts.
