Turns out not all good brunches require an hour plus wait. In fact, for some you can even make reservations. What? In Chicago? It’s true! On a recent (super rainy, slightly chilly…where is spring?) Sunday, the hubby and I met a friend in from out of town who was staying in River North and was a on a schedule. We needed a restaurant in the area where we could get in and out within an hour. Enter Bistronomic, which takes reservations for brunch. Woot woot!
While I still have not made it to Bistronomic for dinner (I may have mentioned before, I am not a huge French cuisine fan), I thought brunch was very good. I had the delightful and perfectly cooked wild mushroom omelet. I wish I had ordered it with less of the pleasant ridge parmesan-like cheese, because it was heavy on the stringy stuff, and perhaps toast instead of the buttered fingerling potatoes, but this was all my fault. I also wish Bistronomic had other kinds of milk besides whole for coffee. I get that it’s French. But this is (say it with redneck accent) AMERICA.
Bistronomic also serves bottomless mimosas for $15. Catch is, there is a time limit of an hour and a half. Sounds like a challenge to me!
Try Bistronimic at 840 N. Wabash Ave.
