Food Pr0n: Brunch at Prairie Grass Café

By Caitlin Klein in Food on Aug 1, 2012 4:00PM

What is it with brunch lately? We don't know, and we don't care. Just keep it coming. We recently had brunch at Prairie Grass Café in Northbrook, and we gotta say, it was fresh. Prairie Grass emphasizes local food and farms, which is not surprising given Chef George Bumbaris and Chef Sarah Stegner’s heavy involvement with the Green City Market.

City dwellers might be reluctant to go all the way up north to Wisconsin Northbrook, but why not make a day of it? Have brunch at Prairie Grass and head over to the nearby Chicago Botanic Gardens. Take your girlfriend. Or her parents. Take the whole family. They're going to love it.
