One of the biggest brunch surprises in the city may very well be what's going on at Cicchetti right now, where the brand new brunch menu features a smattering of outre Italian dishes alongside re-imagined, Italian-tinged American favorites. More

The Brunch Dish: Caffè Oliva is a Vacation in Your Mouth

The Brunch Dish Matt Kirouac Post a comment

Brunch at Caffè Oliva, located right on Ohio Street Beach, is as close to a legitimate getaway as I've gotten in a long time, but unlike most beach-centric vacations I've been on, the food here is shockingly ambitious and memorable. More

The Brunch Dish: Howells & Hood Takes an Aristocratic Approach to the Brunch Buffet

The Brunch Dish Matt Kirouac Post a comment

When it comes to brunch buffets, there's a fine line between dignified and hungover-in-Vegas, a line that Howells & Hood tactfully toes. The unlimited Sunday brunch buffet ($29 per person) feels less like a tacky cruise ship spread and more like a thoughtfully curated brunch menu that just so happens to be strewn before you in eye-bulging amounts.

Scenes from the Sound Opinions End of Summer BBQ at Navy Pier

Events Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Last night Sound Opinions held an "End of Summer BBQ" on WBEZ's terrace at Navy Pier. Sure, I love the weekly rock radio show (especially the recent episode on the history of punk), but I was mostly milling around the crowd for the food, which included some of my favorites restaurants in the city. Hoosier Mama Pie Copmany, Butcher and Larder, and Black Dog Gelato. More

A Sandwich a Day: Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese on Ciabatta at Lavazza

A Sandwich a Day Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

If you find yourself in Lavazza in Streeterville, odds are you are in need of a caffeine fix. That's cool. I admire a good espresso as much as the next completely addicted coffee junkie should. But you can also score a pretty good lunch here, too. More

Guests previewed dishes from the upcoming Pecking Order and Flour and Bones, along with a host of other quality vendors from around the Midwest. More
