1) STREETERVILLE—Jose Garces' newly-opened Rural Society will launch their "Buenos Aires Brunch" on Easter Sunday, view the entire menu below. They are offering a la carte items or a two-course prix fixe option for $35 with an alcoholic beverage ($25 without alcohol). You can make reservations on OpenTable. [EaterWire]

2) WEST TOWNLaunched last weekend, Charlatan's brunch will entice drinkers and eaters alike. A drink dubbed "The Canary in a Coal Mine" features a mix of cognac, Fernet Branca amaro and cold-pressed coffee. On the food side, there's a malted waffle that has pecan crumble, cinnamon butter and amaro whipped cream. [RedEye]

3) GREEKTOWN—Though there's the requisite fried chicken and waffles along with a Bloody Mary, Tapworks Tavern & Grill is now also offering items such as a pork flight, beer-poached apple French toast, and a barbecue benedict with stout beer-infused bbq sauce in smoked pulled pork that sits on top of a jalapeno corn cake. For drinkers on a budget, Tapworks is serving $1.95 mimosas. [EaterWire]

4) DEPAUL—White Oak Tavern's executive chef John Asbaty is setting the stage to debut the local, seasonal restaurant's brunch service next Saturday, March 28. The full menu hasn't been revealed yet, but Asbaty will be making a brunch salad with smoked sturgeon, along with an open-faced Cuban sandwich on house brioche with a fried egg. The cocktail menu will feature the "Grand Saluki" with Koval vodka, Imbue Petal & Thorn vermouth and lemon that is rimmed with smoked sea salt and pink peppercorn. [EaterWire]

5) BOYSTOWN—If you're looking for a seafood-centric brunch, head over to Dive Bar where offerings include shrimp on toast, seafood crepes, and crab cake eggs Benedict. They also have a twist on a couple of brunch standards with fried chicken and sweet potato waffles, as well as rum raisin French toast. View the full menu here. [EaterWire]
