After a wonderful dinner Friday night followed by some drinks and serious bubble hockey and a Thai fix Saturday, I woke up to a light dusting of snow covering the city Sunday morning. I was in need of a good hearty brunch and The Publican was calling my name.
Walking in with no reservation, most of the tables were occupied but I was seated at the bar. Perfect.
I was fully recovered by Friday’s shenanigans by now and ordered the Morning Breeze cocktail.
For my meal, I decided to get a few “sides”. It was plenty of food. I ordered the crispy potatoes with dijonnaise and ricotta salata with a couple over medium eggs. I also tried the buttermilk biscuit with blueberry jam and salted butter.
I couldn’t skip the thick cut Publican bacon braised with Burton’s maple syrup. Gorgeous!
The food was great and I’m glad I finally made it to The Publican for brunch.
After brunchin’, I decided to check out the International Museum of Surgical Science. It’s the only museum devoted to surgery in North America! Working in the medical field, I thought it was really interesting.
It was my final day in Chicago and I had the rest of the night ahead of me for dinner, a themed popup, and a stop at one of my favorite bars.
