For the next few weeks, we're going to let our fall interns take the reins and share with you some of their interests and talents. This week, we introduce our intern Kira. Kira is a junior at DePaul University majoring in public relations and advertising. Kira is passionate about fashion and finding yummy new spots for brunches and dinners. With all of the amazing neighborhoods in the city, there are endless opportunities to try new places and meals.
My new favorite brunch spot is a cute, little restaurant in Wicker Park; a neighborhood I have been exploring lately! It’s brunch food with a twist: Creme Brulee Pancakes and Lobster Cakes Benedict to name a few of my favorites. This will definitely be a place I return to with friends, family, and hopefully my Chrome City coworkers.
Boho (Bohemian House):
I tried this place for the first time a month or two ago and have been dying to go back ever since. First of all, being in the River North area always feels very “Chicago” so the atmosphere is inherently fun. The “Bohemian-inspired fare” is so interesting and the menu changes seasonally (something that I love). The Salmon with dill and summer squash is a must have, and the beef-cheek sounds strange, but I promise it’s delicious.
An amazing sushi place in Lakeview that offers fresh fish as well as grilled veggies and meats. There are never many people inside of this small location, but the service and vibe are always on point. I love the diversity on the menu, I can always find something to fit my palate.
This hole-in-the-wall restaurant is also located in the hip Wicker Park neighborhood. Their bowls are reasonably priced and made with rice, delicious Korean BBQ meat, and loaded with veggies. The color and presentation of these bowls is enough to make my mouth water. This place is versatile because although it is small, the interior is so well done. It's a great sport for date night or just for a quick lunch out.
