One of Chicago’s best brunch spots is back. After about a month of renovations, Jam reopened Saturday at 2853 N. Kedzie Avenue, about a half mile north from its previous location on Logan Boulevard. Jam’s taken over former Yusho space.

Regular patrons will likely find the new space familiar. The restaurant team incorporated the old location’s white sconces, concrete tables and clear plastic chairs. But unlike the old location, the new digs have an industrial vibe with exposed brick and high ceilings.

Food-wise, expect all of the old favorites that earned Jam five consecutive Michelin Bib Gourmand nods like the malted-custard French toast and burrito suizo, plus several new additions, including pumpkin pancakes with pistachio anglaise and pepita streusel and beet salad with cold-poached beets, cured-Tuscan kale, chia seed cracker, and dill chèvre.

And because the new space is larger, the chances of getting into the popular restaurant are greater. Not only are there nearly 40 more seats, but there’s also a waiting area, so instead of being forced to wait elsewhere or jamming (no pun intended) into the vestibule, patrons can pass the time with a cup of coffee and a fresh pastry.

This is the third home for Jam, named one of Eater Chicago’s Essential brunch restaurants. The restaurant debuted in Wicker Park before moving to 3057 W. Logan Boulevard.

Take a tour of the space and read the menu below. Jam is once more open for all of Logan Square’s brunch needs.

Jam, 2853 N. Kedzie Avenue, (773) 292-6011, open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday through Tuesday; closed on Wednesday.
