Tonight, you want a simple, square-shouldered BLT at a friendly corner diner. On the other hand, tender escargots swimming in garlicky butter sauce never hurt anything either. Your weakness for snails is, after all, legendary.
Problem solved: welcome to Eatt, a bustling new River North bistro with a big soft spot for all the comforts America (and France) has to offer, open now.
The day starts early around here: at 6am, pop into the front bakery, where hot espresso awaits, the croissants are fresh, and you can pocket a few housemade Nutter Butters to tide you over until lunch. But what the hell—you’re here already. Slide into one of those red leather booths and sink into Dutch Apple Pancakes or a lox platter.
Come lunch, you and the office gang can swing in for pastrami-topped burgers, truffled tater tots or maybe that BLT. But okay, we lied—it’s not so simple: there’s an Ahi Tuna version, and Shrimp BLT with Gruyère, smoked bacon and a citrus-chive mayo on Texas toast.
When you’re looking for a launching pad for Hubbard Street carousing, you’ll find all the escargots, mussels, steak and frites you need. And it’s open till 2am, so if you need some baby back ribs before going home, Eatt will be waiting for you with open arms.
They knew you couldn’t stay away.
