You asked, we answered! Beatrix has officially opened its doors in the suburbs of Chicago. Introducing Beatrix Oak Brook, located in Oakbrook Center (272 Oakbrook Center), the newest neighborhood restaurant and coffeehouse features a healthy meets delicious menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, in addition to the signature coffee and bakery counter.
Other than being the first suburban restaurant for Beatrix, what else is new and exciting at the Oak Brook location? We thought you’d never ask!
Here are 5 things to know about the newest Beatrix:
1. Ready, Set, Coffee
Home to Beatrix’s largest coffee bar and lounge, the 90-seat area is the perfect spot to get some work done, meet a friend or host a meeting, all while grabbing your morning coffee. We suggest the Honey Cinnamon Latte or Iced Banana Joe.
Want to re-boot with a fresh-squeezed juice? New drinks include the Celery and Caraway Juice, Activated Charcoal Lemonade or house-made Wellness Shots. We’ll cheers to that!
2. We’re Hungry: Let’s Eat
This new location still features signatures from Beatrix in River North, Streeterville and Fulton Market, but the chef team in Oak Brook has been busy cooking up new favorites including: Rita’s Pineapple with basil-lime sugar, Burnt Honey Toast, Deep Dish Apple Pancake, Grilled Swordfish Kebab with quinoa rice pilaf and Pepper Steak with sweet peppers, pearl onions and peppercorn sauce.
3. Grab it To-Go from Pastry Case & New Carry-Out Counter
We get it- sometimes you don’t have time to leave the office for a full lunch break – grab a pastry or a coffee to-go from the signature pastry counter and starting this spring, stop by the dedicated carry-out area at Beatrix to pick-up you order. No fuss, no special delivery fees, no trekking through a busy restaurant – just a quick, easy pick-up.
4. Pass the Pastries, Please
When it comes to Beatrix pastries and desserts, we find ourselves always having a sweet tooth! Chef/Partner Yasmin Gutierrez’s house-made treats are perfect for any time of day and new to the case is the Everything Croissant and Midnight Macaroon – we’ll be sure to save you a bite!
5. It’s (Private) Party Time
Beatrix’s largest private dining room has arrived in Oak Brook! Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, holiday celebration, bridal shower or meeting, the space seats up to 60 guests, holds up to 100 guests for reception style events and features a private bar. The flexible room may also be divided into two semi-private rooms that can host up to 36 guests respectively. Also coming Spring 2019, Beatrix will open two outdoor spaces including a 40-seat patio and a 20-seat coffee lounge.
