12 Spots for the Best Brunch in Chicago — 2019 Edition

April 9, 2019

 

"Park yourself in the sunny front garden/bar area of this West Town favorite (the opulent back dining room is also lovely, though not nearly as brunchy feeling), get a pitcher of Le Rosé Three Way ($35/$70) with still, sparkling, and Lillet rosés (as well as rosado syrup for good measure), and peruse the menu of chef Marcos Campos’ Middle Eastern-inspired brunch dishes. The Smoked Baba Ghanoush ($12), served over a bed of tart tahini yogurt and enriched with plenty of black garlic umami, is drizzled with fig balsamic, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and za’atar, and served with warm, house-made pita bread. The Steak & Eggs Kabob($19) is an easily shareable dish. The marinated steak chunks are layered on top of a large slab of roti bread and strewn with a truffled egg-yolk jam, pickled onions, and baby kale and freekeh salad. But the Funnel Cake($12) is the clear star of the show. It may look like squiggly fried intestines, but I am here to tell you that it is golden and crisp and all that is goodness, and once it is garnished with whipped goat cheese, orange blossom honey, dried apricots, fresh blackberries, chopped pistachios and walnuts, and of course confectioner’s sugar, you won’t care a whit. (Brunch served Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
