Brunch, not quite breakfast nor lunch, is one of the best parts of the weekend — even during a pandemic. The Eater Chicago Brunch Heatmap is here to help by highlighting the newest options for a delicious midday meal.
The latest additions to the map below include French brasserie Venteux, rooftop hotspot Bar Avec, and Bronzeville cafe Little Sandwich House. They join a growing number of places that are focused on creating exciting brunch menus. So start the day off right with eggs (and much more) at these 16 destinations.
As of June 11, Chicago restaurants have fully reopened and the city has lifted restrictions on capacity, masking, and social distancing.
