Now available Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the menu is chock full of contemporary comforts, like fried chicken and waffles with bourbon maple syrup, grilled skirt steak and eggs with braised short rib-sweet potato hash, and a crab Benedict with poached eggs and lobster hollandaise. Don’t miss the sweets from pastry chef Angela Diaz either, like doughnuts and cinnamon rolls. To drink, expect Four Letter word coffee, Irish coffee, Harvey Wallbangers and more. 

Wine 101 at ENO

Great for wine beginners, ENO Wine Room’s “Wine 101” class on March 26, part of their ongoing ENOversity program, is geared for novices interested in expanding their wine horizons. The event will provide attendees with a diverse array of wines to sample, from high-acid bottles to fruity varietals, low-body sippers and everything in between. To accompany, “students” will be provided with assorted cheeses, charcuterie and chocolates. Per usual for ENOversity lessons, there are two sessions on March 26, one at 3:00 p.m. and another at 6:00 p.m. The cost to attend is $55 per person. Reservations are required and tickets can be secured here

Latin American Cocktail Class

If you’d prefer a cocktail class to a wine class, then you’re in luck! Adjoining sister spots MONEYGUN and Saint Lou’s Assembly are continuing their ongoing mixology lessons with a Latin-themed session on March 30. As is the case with all their monthly classes, this one is a three-course shindig led by MONEYGUN bartenders teaching guests about the process of making three different themed drinks. Each one will be paired with a dish by chef Carlos Cruz. The class costs $75 per person, with more details and reservations available here: http://www.saintlouschicago.com
