If there’s one thing Chicagoans love, it’s brunch. And in Wicker Park, Fifolet Cajun & Cocktails has recently debuted another option for your favorite weekend pastime.
After their New Year’s Day pop up brunch, the Wicker Park restaurant made the decision to offer a New Orleans-style brunch each and every weekend. “The feedback from our pop up brunch was incredibly positive and since then people have been asking us if/when we would start offering it on a permanent basis,” says Executive Chef Kevin Crouse.
Available from 10:00 am– 3:00 pm, Fifolet’s brunch menu will feature half a dozen new breakfast-focused items along with a handful of signature dishes that fan favorites since Fifolet opened its doors in November. “Our brunch menu is a great combination, savory and spicy dishes,” says Chef de Cuisine Corey Gillom. “And, as with our dinner menu, many items can be made vegetarian or gluten free.”Menu highlights include:
