Chicagoans, it's been a long week of sub-zero temperatures. You deserve brunch.
Four recently-recently restaurants are there for you, kicking off brunch service within the next two weeks. Read all about them below.
LOGAN SQUARE—Osteria Langhe, the well-regarded Piemontese spot on Armitage, is launching brunch service this Sunday. Chef Cameron Grant's menu includes chocolate hazelnut-dipped bacon, Bang Bang biscuits and carbonara gravy, ciabatta dip with duck pastrami, and six brunch cocktails.
WEST LOOP—You'll have to wait two weeks for this one, but Takito Kitchen's sibling Bar Takito will begin serving brunch on January 24. The menu includes chef David Dworshak's twists on Mexican cuisine such as "Pambazos" (bolillo roll, guajillo sauce, house chorizo, potatoes, eggs, crema, queso fresco, lettuce, cilantro) alongside inventive cocktails in the same vein.
WICKER PARK—Barley & Brass, the new bar and eatery on Division, is getting into the brunch action tomorrow after opening in November. There's green eggs and ham, chicken and waffles, and $10 bottles of bubbly at the new spot from the 25 Degrees guys.
LAKE BLUFF—Up on the north shore over the weekend? New Lake Bluff spot Maevary Public House is joining the brunch game tomorrow as well. The restaurant hasn't revealed the menu yet but look for their take on upscale American food during the daytime this weekend.
