Brunch at Sable Kitchen and Bar

Lately it seems that the hottest thing in Chicago dining is revamping your brunch menu. Here are four new brunches to check out.

BellyQ just added a brand new Sunday brunch menu with items both classic and Asian-inspired. Available from 10 a.m. to 2 pm, the menu includes a tea smoked duck benedict, huckleberry jam and vanilla maple syrup French toast, and a nori waffle with sake, maple syrup, and pork patties.

Toni Patisserie and Café just launched Waffle Weekends. All day on Saturday and Sunday, there will be three different waffles available: a traditional Belgian topped with maple syrup, berry compote, fresh berries, or whipped cream; a savory cheese waffle with ratatouille sauce; and a rotating waffle du jour.

Sable Kitchen and Bar launched a new Saturday and Sunday brunch menu that consists entirely of shared plates available in whole and half sizes. Try brûléed steel cut oatmeal, ginger-scallion brown fried rice, or housemade sausage links wrapped in pancakes.

You’ll have to be patient, but starting April 28, Acadia is adding a prix fixe Sunday brunch menu from 11 am to 3 pm. Dishes include morel mushroom tarts; crepes with gruyere, potato, ham, and scrambled eggs; and lobster eggs benedict.
