If I had to pick one restaurant to send out of towners, last year it would have been Lula. This year though it'd be the brunch at Kitchen Chicago. An utterly fantastic crepe, delightful coffee, and a friendly chat with the proprieter... not to mention fresh bon-bons, best use of an oven ever, and the cutest cafe ever. And free Wi-Fi. Go here before everyone else does, it's fantastic. They only have Sunday Brunch for now, but meals will be coming to many weeknights near you as well.
