Windchill is below zero & dark by 4pm, seasonal mood disorder is lurking behind a group of slow walking moms and daughters celebrating their first trip to American Girl Place… my favorite in house medicine: Chicago Brunching. What Chicago lacks in sunshine and good smelling public transit, they make up for in mimosa’s and bacon. Allow me to introduce you to the Lakefront Restaurant. Thick cut Nueske’s bacon.
Unaware why this is so important? Get there ASAP, and live your best life. Not a bacon lover? No worries, the chicken fried chicken comes with apple sausage gravy, 2 eggs, smashed potatoes AND fried potatoes. Two sides of potatoes? Grandma Flannigan would be so proud. Non meat eaters, I saw an option but politely moved passed it. However, if you prefer to drink your brunch the Award Winning Bloody Mary mix is bomb and the Lakefront Manhattan will flex on any hangover. Floor to ceiling windows, lovely view of the city, easy drop off for valet or lyft. I spent New Year’s Eve and have already been back for brunch. Fill your tank with brunch, it’s what Chicagoans need!
