Gilt City


I was invited to brunch with Gilt City’s Nicole Banks at The Savoy, an upscale Seafood-Raw Bar-Absinthe kitchen and lounge to delight in what is truly an edible experience for brunch and breakfast enthusiasts.



I opted for the Lobster Crepes (a fantastic choice) with honey crisp apple, asian pear, fennel and lemon vanilla mascarpone. Perfectly proportioned, I enjoyed every tasty bite of the succulent lobster paired with a perfect hint of fruity sweetness.  Nicole’s Saffron Shrimp and Polenta with saffron cream and parmesan polenta looked rich and utterly delectable.


Other unique food pairings include: banana bread french toast dressed with flambé bananas, smoked porchetta & eggs, and oysters on the half shell bathed in a smoked tomato cocktail blend. Fresh brewed coffee, a ‘malicious mary’ and hand-made peanut butter pie round out the brunch offerings.

The daily menu also serves up fresh seafood and many vintage absinthe cocktail varieties outfitted in fabulous fountains and hand-blown glasses. Attracting neighborhood foodies and fashionistas, this gem is a true sampling of the unique dining experiences and insider invites Gilt City Chicago has to offer. Brunch is served on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting at 11am.
