beatrix : brunch update.

my girls & i have clear favorites for every meal ... brunch is no exception. and at the top of that list is beatrix in river north.

this past weekend was my first visit to beatrix for brunch, as i'd previously one been for lunch. but i have been hearing rave reviews from the gang for so long, so i knew it'd be delish.

same as last time, "beatrix is a neighborhood restaurant, coffeehouse & meeting place ... [with] a menu inspired by food made in lettuce entertain you’s test kitchen." noice.

here's what i had ...

ten-grain oatmeal :
 sun-dried sour cherries, dark brown sugar, toasted almonds.
who gets oatmeal in 90 degree weather. you ask? i do, okay?!
this was, perhaps, the best non-traditional oatmeal i've ever had. the ten grains were great! i love that kind of thing. could have maybe used more cherries, but now i know for next time. they even have almond (& soy) milk at beatrix, so that was a perfect addition to cool the bowl off a bit.

my only qualm was that i also ordered a side of tomatoes & avocado, which was tiny. i know it's attached to a hotel, so they can get away with that kind of thing. but still. 

doesn't mean i won't be back ... because i 100% most certainly will!
