“Brunch, not quite breakfast or lunch, is often overlooked but Eater Chicago’s here to give it all the attention it deserves. The Eater Chicago Brunch Heatmap is a continually-updated list showing the newest places that are doing great things with their brunch menus. Because after a long week, everyone should kick back and relax over an omelet and Bloody Mary. So don’t ruin the weekend by making the wrong choice. Nobody likes soggy bacon.
This month’s additions include The Ritz-Carlton’s Torali Italian – Steak, an Andersonville outpost of Hutch, and all-day cafe Half Sour. They join a growing number of eateries dedicated to making their midday options as equally important as dinner service. Sure, you can order a McMuffin at all hours of the day but why settle? Start Sunday Funday off right and get your eggs (and much more) on at these red-hot restaurants.
Andersonville lost an ambitious Mexican restaurant when Cantina 1910 closed but filling its void is the third iteration of Hutch. Brunch enthusiasts will be happy to know that it’s served every day of the week. The reliable menu plays host to comforting dishes like tater tot nachos, Nutella dough poppers, chicken and waffles, and breakfast grilled cheese. Of course, no morning would be complete without a boozy drink so there are various bloodies and mimosas available too.
Baseball’s regular season hasn’t started but the party never stops in Wrigleyville. Brickhouse Tavern, located at the Park at Wrigley, is flying the W with a weekend brunch package. Priced at $25, the all-you-can-eat spread includes a carving station, mac and cheese bar, pancake station, hot dog station, and more. Mimosas can be added for an extra $15.”
