Situated in River North, the American bar and kitchen of Bottlefork offers a divinely eclectic mix of globally-inspired fare. Of all the dishes we tried, not one was "meh." They all wowed me pretty much equally. Cast iron baked French Toast. Braised beef cheek poutine. A bag of malt vinegar crisps with egg. Glazed donut holes with a homemade jelly. A breakfast sope with chorizo black beans, guacamole and ranchera sauce. A homemade spam eggs benedict. A melt-in-your-mouth cobbler. And more.
I loved the laid-back and comfortably chic vibe and how they elevated such predictable brunch classics to give them a vibrant presentation and flavor that wouldn't soon be forgotten. We met Chef Kevin Hickey on our stop and that man knows how to do brunch!

Ahhh....we interrupt to bring you this Bellini...
And back to brunch...
Billy was an awesome host and so down-to-earth. He's so full of passion for everything he's involved in. I'm a huge fan of everything he does, whether its opening a hot new eatery, doing charity work or popping up in a crime drama. The day was simply delicious.
