Pizzeria Serio in Lakeview. Love how they cater to kids and their draft beer selection is impressive for the neighborhood pizza joint.
Visited my old colleague’s new restaurant, Smylie Bros Brewing Co. In Evanston. Great brews, and an awesome build. Pretzel was key for soaking up all the beer.
Brunch @ Julius Meinl. Solid, solid. Crepe, Austrian pancakes, and coffee galore.
GT never fails. Brunch was solid. Nutella banana French toast, crab Benedict, and a Paloma to wash it down. Oh, and don’t forget the churros.
@ Grace restaurant.
Floored by the cuisine @ Grace. Herbed butter the color of peas, dragon fruit, shaving truffles at the table, & got to speak with chef Duffy. This team is not joking around. Best part? No pretension.
Uhm sure. I’ll take this room. Upgraded for the Staycation. Damn right.
The ultimate umami lunch @ the purple pig in Chitown. Grilled octo, waygu sirloin, pig ears with kale & egg, & burrata. Uhm, more please? Even got to have a convo with Beard rising star chef jimmy banjos jr. Wow, that was good. @
@ Heritage bicycle shop in Lakeview …because, how else should a weekend start?
