The relentless unpredictability of the past 12 months may have thrown your entire concept of the spacetime continuum for a loop, but that’s no reason to skip out on every millenial’s favorite meal: weekend brunch. Whether you’re masking up and venturing out or hunkering down and ordering in, raise your glass to Sunday funday (or is it Saturday caturday?) with a belt-busting helping of lifegiving deliciousness lovingly prepared by these excellent area brunch specialists.


Logan Square

Logan Square’s dapper Italian enclave is back in action, dishing up a reinvigorated menu of head-turners fresh from the glossy tile-lined wood-burning oven. It’s hard to resist the breakfast pizza, a best-of-both-worlds production marrying velvety ricotta, bold preserved tomato, and black trumpet mushrooms with a sunny side egg, while a country toast tartines with toppings like shaved turkey with lemon aioli, hass avocado with salty sunflower seeds, and porchetta with spicy giardiniera form a powerfully tempting trio. Whatever you choose, make sure to pair it with a bright and bubbly Brunch G&T (dry gin, grapefruit, plum bitters, tonic, basil) for some much-needed Roman restoration.

How to order: Head to Resy for indoor dining reservations or grab pick-up and delivery via Toast, DoorDash, and Caviar.
