Duffy’s Tavern & Grille
There's no good way to introduce this, but we were feeling adventurous. We wanted to step outside our comfort zone to experience a brunch situation that we have heard much about, in both legend and hazy memory. We decided to jump on the 151 for door-to-door transit service and head to the southern edge of … Continue reading Duffy’s Tavern & Grille
Southport & Irving aka SIP
Another beautiful Chicago summer day, and we decided to venture to an old favorite of ours that we have not visited in a while, Southport & Irving.

In our post-Pride haze, we awoke Monday morning-ish and decided to head to our second brunch of the weekend at Hutch Bistro. Yeah, I don't know what we were thinking either. Our zeal for delicious breakfast items overrides our poor judgment every time. Setting the Scene It was a bright, sunny, and cool day, with … Continue reading Hutch Bistro
Sunday dawned bright and warm: perfect festival weather compared to last week's wilting temperatures. Chicago Pridefest was slowly waking up from Saturday's hot and rainy festivities. Becky was feeling a little under the weather, and Jodie was fatigued from a long week at the shop, but we rallied our tired old selves out to explore what … Continue reading El Mariachi
We visited the recently remodeled and re-branded Bistro 750 in Chicago's Boystown to give their brunch a try. We were frequent guests of Taverna 750 before they closed, and we were excited to visit the new venue. Setting the Scene We arrived at around 12:30 on a warm spring Sunday and the patio was already busy … Continue reading Bistro 750
