Chicago=Delicious overload. Yes!!!
For food lovers out there who have never been to Chicago, this is THE ONE city you do not want to miss out on. The thing I miss most about my hometown Chicago-proper brunch and bourbon/whiskey bars. Both extremely difficult to find in Seoul. My sister-in-law Jiye took me to Longman and Eagle-a fairly new spot that opened in Logan Square last year. The moment I saw their bourbon/whiskey rack, I was already convinced. Their menu? Uh, fried chicken & waffles, pastrami spiced pig head, wild boar sloppy joe, duck egg hash with duck confit...ok I should just stop. Not surprising these combinations are common in Chicago: home of foodies, amazing chefs, and locals who truly practice everything 'sustainable'.
Eat. Sleep. Whiskey.
What makes Longman & Eagle so unique? In addition to their impeccable food menu, it's a mini boutique hotel. They offer six rooms, each with a different feel and concept. Take a peek and you'll want to book a room there the next time you're in Chicago! What's better than to eat, drink a bourbon manhattan, crawl into bed, then wake up to their brunch! Yeah, I dig the 'one stop shop' concept.
Dear Longman & Eagle, I was only able to try two items on your brunch menu the first time around, but I will definitely be back to attack the rest of your menu and whiskey rack! Just you wait...

The beautiful bar...
Fried chicken, waffles, sweet potato, pork belly hash & maple syrup (a southern fave!).
Sunny side duck egg hash with duck confit, Nichols Farm spring onions, Yukon gold potatoes,
with black truffle vinaigrette.
Ok, I could just hang out at the bar and get a sampling of everything...
