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...

Ok, I could just hang out at the bar and get a sampling of everything...
