Batter & Berries - Chicago
Pro tip if you're planning to check out this popular Lincoln Park brunch, lunch and breakfast nook: Don't go if you're on a diet. Batter & Berries takes classic dishes to the extreme--and that's a very good thing.
Its famed French toast flight put it on the dining map, making Batter & Berries a destination for even the rich and famous when they visit Chicago. From professional athletes and musicians to television news personalities and network stars, it has attracted recognizable faces for the likes of caramel French toast, sweet potato waffles stuffed with fried chicken and more.
Be aware, however, that the restaurant isn't a fancy establishment. It's an intimate, cozy eatery where people are willing to wait up to two hours for the food. It's also BYOB, so the owners encourage guests to bring their favorite bottles of bubbly, craft beer and wine.
