When you think of a hotel restaurant you might think of the buffet at the Holiday Inn but think again with Brasserie by LM. Located at 800 S. Michigan Avenue and attached to the Essex Inn, this French bar and restaurant will make you say, "Oui!"
Decorated with a hip and modern flare this hot spot offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner with hours running from 6:30 am to 10:30 pm.
Start off with a bottomless mimosa or the savory quiche. I tried the lunch and had an excellent server from the bar. She made tasty cocktails like the Pineapple Crush which combines tequila and champagne.
The onion soup started off lunch. Even though the mussels are usually an entree they work well as an appetizer so keep that in mind. A must try is the beef bourguinon and the herb butter on the hanger steak really made the dish. Visit brasseriebylm.com for pricing and details.
To try more exotic foods for dinner head over to Frontier at 1072 N Milwaukee Avenue. Don't let the rustic and huge bear scare you away from the popular place. With a patio as bustling as the upstairs complete with a live DJ and 24 huge televisions for entertainment, Frontier recently celebrated its year birthday.
Sports nuts go crazy over the deviled eggs and oysters. One must try item is the amish roasted chicken complete with a five cheese macaroni. For the more adventurous try the gator ribs or the llama meatballs. Chef Jupiter really knows what he's doing so don't worry you are in good hands.
