Café Robey - Chicago
Situated on the famed Six Corners separating Bucktown and Wicker Park, Café Robey offers French-American fare in an upscale casual atmosphere. The restaurant is also located on the street level of The Robey Hotel, making it a destination for hotel guests and area residents alike for breakfast, brunch and dinner.
Most dishes are meant for sharing, beginning with oysters (make sure to top them off with the signature gin-spiced cocktail sauce), Montauk-fried calamari and pork belly cassoulet. Diners are also encouraged to share sides such as the roasted carrots in brown butter and cumin as well as pan-seared Brussels sprouts and pommes frites. Main dishes range from wild-caught salmon to tagliatelle bolognese in a grass-fed meat sauce.
Café Robey's brunch specials also make it worth seeking out on the regular. Choose from orange French toast, buttermilk pancakes with whipped ricotta, toasted coconut and lime maple syrup or smoked salmon Benedict.
