Everyone is Irish on St. Paddy's Day, when Chicago dyes the River green and presents the annual St. Patrick's Day parade. Cantina Laredo in River North will welcome celebrants for a shamrockin' good time on Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17. Starting at 10 a.m. each day, St. Paddy's partiers may enjoy modern Mexican dishes from Chef Daniel Espinoza's new brunch menu, including French Toast with piloncillo syrup, citrus whipped cream, fresh berries and candied pumpkin seeds ($12), and Barbacoa Hash made with scrambled eggs, crispy potatoes, shaved radishes, chipotle mayo and salsa cruda ($13.75). Brunch entrees include a complimentary mimosa or Bloody Maria.
Cantina Laredo will feature $5 pints of green Mexican beer (Modelo Especial) and $9 "Big Mich" micheladas all weekend, in addition to an array of festive Latin libations and fare, including signature margaritas and top shelf guacamole.
