Eating Chicago: Milk & Honey

How many times have I sung the praises of this Wicker Park restaurant?  Obviously not enough because I’m going to talk about it again.  This restaurant is so, so delicious.  I finally had the opportunity to go for brunch and was not disappointed.  My sweet friend Alex, her sister Lauren, and her cousin Henry accompanied me and graciously allowed me to take pictures of their food when it came.


  • Lox
  • Waffles topped with nectarine and strawberries
  • Huevos rancheros
  • BBQ chicken burrito with sweet potato chips

I’m going to try to recreate my huevos rancheros as soon as possible.  I love that they were prepared in a casserole dish and the way the black beans were nestled under the eggs and salsa.  Everyone else enjoyed their meal as well and our only complaint was with the slightly rude wait staff.  Almost everyone we dealt with was curt with us and seemed irritated to be answering questions/taking orders/etc.  This is the first time I’ve really experienced the rude service so I’ll chalk it up to a bad day and leave it be.

I’ll be in Chicago for the rest of the week and I’m hoping to experience some new restaurants so I can share with all of you.  I love trying new things! I hope that you all had a lovely Labor Day weekend (those of you in the states, anyway). How did you celebrate?! I’ll be sharing more from my trip throughout the week.
