Finish off your weekend with a Sunday morning boozy brunch to prolong addressing all your homework that you’ve left until the last minute.
For people good at chugging: Taverna 750
Ready to put your case race skills to the test? Head over to Taverna 750 in Lakeview, where you can down as many mimosas as you want before the entrée course is served in their special brunch deals.
For $24, you get mimosas and two courses, and for $29 you get mimosas, two courses, and two martinis. Make sure to try Taverna 750’s classy take on bacon in their Duck Bacon EBLT (fried egg, bacon, lettuce, tomato).
If mimosas aren’t really your thing, go for the Adult Chocolate Milk that features their house made chocolate liqueur. And for a complete spin down memory lane, pair your Adult Chocolate Milk with their decadent mac and cheese.
For bottomless drinks: Dolce Italian
Mimosas, Bellinis and Bloody Marys, oh my! Dolce Italian, on the north side of Chicago, takes an Italian spin on brunch.
Their special Bubbles Package includes bottomless glasses of your drink of choice. You can choose from the mimosas, Bloody Marys or the classic Italian Bellini.
And if you thought pizza couldn’t get any better, check out their brunch pizza, which features poached egg and sausage gravy.
For people looking to spice things up: Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!
If you’re feeling adventurous and looking to stray away from the typical brunch staples of eggs and pancakes, stop by Cafe Ba- Ba-Reeba for an experience that’s as colorful and lively as the restaurant’s name.
Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba in Lincoln Park is one of the hottest tapas bars in Chicago, and they bring the heat in the morning, too. Start with their pintxos, which are bite sized tapas, and then move on to their brunch tapas.
Paella fans will fall in love with their Breakfast Paella which has bomba rice, Spanish sausages and a scrambled egg crust.
Make sure to check out their Bloody Mary bar where you can make your own perfect version of the drink. If you have room for more booze, their sangria is $25-28 [or just make it ‘begins at $25 a pitcher?] a pitcher – white peach sangria, anyone?
For BYOB: m.henry
m.henry is only a short five mile ‘L’ ride from Northwestern.
Nestled in Andersonville, the restaurant doubles as a bakery, with a to-go counter in the front of the store. When it’s not below freezing, you can opt to sit in the quaint outdoor seating area.
Though known for the Bliss Cakes, their ultra fluffy pancakes, m.henry’s emphasizes fresh and seasonal ingredients, so their menu items will change depending on the season.
Make sure to try the “Fannie’s Killer Fried Egg Sandwich,” perfect to help mitigate any hangover you’re experiencing.
