This vintage-inspired gem serves American pub food with an emphasis on seafood (although there are plenty of options for non–fish eaters). Order a classic egg dish or opt for one of their famous sandwiches such as Blackened Redfish or Uncle Eric’s Roadhouse Burger.
405 N. Wabash Avenue // Make a reservation
You must have heard of Revival Food Hall by now. It’s Chicago’s new modern food court in the Loop. What you may not know is that they just introduced Saturday brunch featuring Bloody Mary carts and more, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Try a BBQ brisket hash at Smoque or a biscuit sandwich at The Budlong, along with many more options. There's something for everyone in your party!
125 S. Clark Street // Browse vendor list and menus
True Food Kitchen just opened their first Chicagoland location. The casual, “eco-chic” spot has healthy and vegan options, plus unique cocktails. Try an organic egg sandwich or vegan chorizo burrito (intriguing, but delicious). Or, skip the eggs and go straight for the butternut squash pizza! Their brunch menu also includes fresh smoothies such as kale & coconut.
