A Guide to Brunching in Chicago

Brunch used to fall on a typical day and time: Sundays between breakfast and lunch. Now, many Chicago restaurants offer brunch on Saturdays too and often much earlier and later, meaning you can enjoy your favorite weekend meal any time. Plus, brunch menus have been popping up in places not typically equated with breakfast-type food, so the choices go way past mere eggs and toast these days, though the staples have not been forgotten, rather elevated to new heights of delicious. We've gathered restaurants all around town that offer a diverse range of options, most a la carte and some with the good, old-fashioned, all-you-can-eat smorgasbord. Hope you're hungry.
