The Weekend Desk Report

"For the majority of his life, Nasir Bin Zakaria was a citizen of nowhere," Marwa Eltagouri reports for the Tribune.

"He was 14 when he was kidnapped by militants at a bazaar in west Myanmar. 'Kalah,' they hissed at him, a racial slur used toward Rohingya - the ethnic Muslim minority residing among the country's Buddhist majority. He spent a night at the militant camp before escaping to Malaysia. He never saw his parents again.

"Now, at 45, he's among almost 1,000 Rohingya refugees who've found a new home in Chicago, the majority of whom began arriving in 2013. The local group makes up nearly a fifth of the Rohingya refugees resettled across the country since 2010, U.S. Department of State officials said.

"Most of the roughly 300 Rohingya families in Chicago live in the Rogers Park and Albany Park neighborhoods."

Weekend Chicago Pizza Report
* Giordano's Opening First Restaurant In Michigan.

* Lou Malnati's To Open In Phoenix.

* Anna Chlumsky tells Travel & Leisure:

"Deep-dish pizza isn't really Chicago-style pizza - I mean, it is, but it was invented in the '70s - it's a marketing thing. To me, real Chicago pizza is what they call tavern-style pizza now. They only call it that because they have to distinguish it from deep dish, but really it's just thin crust pizza in Chicago that you're going to get it in squares. All the kids fight for the corners, and that's what I like."

Weekend Chicago Italian Beef Report
* Anna Chlumsky tells Travel & Leisure:

"I'm originally from Chicago. I go back about once a year. You have to have Italian beef there - many people don't realize that's a very Chicago thing - and my favorite Italian beef is Johnnie's."

* USA Today: "A few things are undisputed about the Italian Beef Sandwich: it originated on the 'Sout' Side of Chicago by Italian immigrants, it's served in hundreds of places around the city and when made correctly, it should leave a trail of juice down your arm."

* Portillo's Brandon Opening Draws Hundreds Of Chicago Transplants.
