Where to Eat Brunch in Chicago Right Now, September 2019
Brunch, not quite breakfast or lunch, is one of the best parts of the weekend. After a long week, people deserve to kick back and relax over omelets and Bloody Marys. Don’t ruin things by making the wrong choice. The Eater Chicago Brunch Heatmap is here to help by highlighting the newest restaurants offering killer brunch options.
This month’s additions include One Off Hospitality’s French hotspot, Café Cancale, Pan Latin restaurant Amaru, and Second City’s new rooftop playground, Utopian Tailgate. They join a growing number of eateries dedicated to having midday menus that are more than just an afterthought. So start Sunday Funday off right with eggs (and much more) at these 20 hotspots.
4. R.J. Grunts
R.J. Grunts, the original Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, made the switch from brunch buffet to a regular a la carte menu. Wake up to a smoked salmon plate, chicken tinga served with tortillas, pecan praline French toast, or the famed salad bar. Diners can also chase hangovers away by spiking their coffee with a liqueur. Afterward, head to nearby Lincoln Park Zoo to burn off those calories.
