A busy patio season is beginning in Chicago as warm weather finally approaches. When hunger invades while exploring Lincoln Park Zoo be sure and stop by Cafe Brauer.

Locaed at 2012 N. Stockton Dr. this hostpot for weddings has a beautiful view of the pond behind and the breathtaking city.

The cuisine is of an American flare including black bean burgers and buttermilk fried chicken. There are some items perfect for sharing like the crispy calamari and the chicken wings.

The service moves quickly and efficiently with a helpful attentive staff. Recently, the venue presented a tasting of several items that were delicious and at a smart price point. The cocktails were smooth and quite tasty.

This landmark location was designed by Dwight H. Perkins in 1908 and has aged well over the years with a solid foundation.

A seated dinner or possible ceremony space is available for rent but filling up fast. For options and hours visit
