this eatery was recommended by a friend (thanks SP), who loves everything about chicago. i’ve only been to the magnificent mile and the suburbs in my past trips to this city, so i was eager to eat in lincoln park and explore this neat little neighborhood.

it was a delicious brunch to get us on our day. our visit to rick bayless’ xoco the day before still left us craving for chorizo. sancho’s omelet was an easy choice. their citrus house cured gravlax was a bit tricky to eat (the bagel crisps would break when any weight was added to them), but was very good! it was like a deconstructed bagel with salmon bits and cream cheese. mmm and ofcourse i couldn’t pass up the pan au chocolat.
“eat, drink, repeat”? yes please!
