We’re here for you!

We’re driven by our passion for good food and people, and are here for your service.  We simply want to provide you with delicious food, a fun and uplifting atmosphere and serve you with joy.  We take great pride in our menu consisting of freshly prepared items (yes we crack our own eggs & shred the potatoes daily) and collaborations with other local artisans, purveyors & craftspeople for a truly unique experience.

Our Story

Established in 2012 by Dr. Tanya & Craig Richardson who had a desire to add an eclectic world class restaurant to the vibrant Chicago brunch scene.  The idea was simple: offer the freshest food possible with flavors that people would come from all over the world to experience, and want to come back for more.  Always a supporter of community and local businesses, we have taken the idea to the next level with cultivated partnerships.  We’ve collaborated with several local artisans, craftspeople and purveyors to provide a uniquely Chicago experience.
