I don't venture into Pilsen often, so please send me to the best Mexican spot in that neighborhood.

Crepes in Chicago?

Most delicious crepes in Chicago are at the Green City Market at the SW corner of Lincoln Park (the park) every Saturday morning. The stand probably has a shop to match in the city but I can't recall the name off-hand. Go go go! You won't regret it.

The Girl and the Goat

Does anyone know when Stephanie Izard's restaurant is actually opening? Their website says June 2010, but I don't think they're open yet...

Farm Fresh Restaurant Suggestions

I second the Perennial suggestion, especially for brunch. For very reasonable prices, they deliver well-seasoned, fresh food. If the review helps you decide:

Perennial and I are a food match; we like fresh ingredients, seasoned perfectly. Strange as it seems, I was blown away by how appropriately the salad greens were seasoned. Thank you! I will be returning to Perennial for dinner as their courses look very creative and the waiter, Josh, boasted of the chef’s ingenuity.

Brunch:
Truffle eggs benedict – While the mushrooms and spinach were cooked skillfully, the combination of rich, umami flavor left me craving a little acid. As I mentioned above, I could have eaten the salad greens all day. And, truffle oil does nothing for me.

Last note: beware of the $4.50 charge for tea. I have never paid so much for tea in my life.
