WHISK owners and brothers Rick and David Rodriguez are bringing their brand of American brunch cuisine with a Mexican twist to Ukrainian Village.
We sat down to try Rick and David's recommended brunch dishes.
The first thing you'll notice is the inescapable visage of Ron Swanson, a fictional character portrayed by Nick Offerman from the television series Parks and Recreation on NBC.
BYOB is a straightforward affair thanks to the Mariano's located across the street.
Done staring at Mr. Swanson? Let's get down to business...
The extensive menu is divided into sweet, savory and sandwiches after 11am. We started with the Reese's sweet banana pancakes drowning in chocolate sauce and peanut butter cup crumbles.
Next up, more sweet sweet goodness with salted caramel pancakes.
On the savory side David's Special includes a flavorful mix of shrimp and cream sauce. This rich shrimp and grits treatment is really filling and has great potential as a sharing item for the table.
We love a good eggs Benedict, and WHISK delivers with multiple options. The crab Benedict is a classic execution with a spicy kick.
Continuing on the Benedict binge, the chorizo version includes avocado and queso fresco for a distinct Mexican flavor.
The Chilaquiles at WHISK come with one egg any style, sliced avocado and black beans.
"WHISK is one part brunch, served daily from 7AM-5PM. Then from 5PM to close each night the restaurant transforms into WHISK BURGER, serving brunch favorites and cooked-to-order burgers. Several of the burgers can be ordered “breakfast style” upon request, as well."
After 11am guests are invited to dine on a lunch-focused portion of the menu. The house burger is spiced up with classic Mexican flavors and topped with tortilla strips.
