When you read this you’ll have two questions on your mind: Has any one made coffee yet? Where can we find a brunch spot that features a live band playing soul music?
While I can’t answer the first question for you, the second one is easy Untitled in River North. Today from 11am - 3pm, the Prohibition Era restaurant and club is hosting 'Soul Brunch Sunday' with a delicious brunch menu accompanied by a live band playing the sweet soul and Motown hits of James Brown, Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin.
Soul Brunch continues the restaurant’s small plate style and the menu is filled with not-so-average brunch items like the Pork Belly Scrapple Benedict with eggs poached in red wine ($14) or the Brioche French Toast topped with smoked banana fluff, cashew butter and maple syrup (pictured above, $14). And after trying the Pork Belly Scrapple Benedict, you’ll always want to eat eggs poached in red wine!
Created by the talented Chef Joseph Heppe, the generous portions make three dishes perfect for two people, but don’t worry, no one will judge you for ordering four.
A friend of mine and I dove into a number of dishes and as a bacon fanatic, the dish that caught my eye right away was “Drunken Devil on Horseback.” Beyond the awesome name, Chef Heppe stuffed bacon-wrapped prunes with a lightly spiced peach to combine sweet and savory flavors your taste buds will enjoy.
Before calling it a day, make sure you try the Cinnamon Roll made with house-made brioche ($6). Slathered with what looks like an extra helping of frosting, the brioche roll has a rich and tender flavor. This isn’t the dish for someone worrying about their weight, but since we’re already in chaos of Christmas cookies and eggnog embrace the deliciousness!
Untitled is known for its late night dance parties, massive whiskey collection and private dining room, but with the addition of Soul Brunch, Untitled proves that you should both end your night and start your next day at their place.
