We are excited to welcome a second location of Beatrix to the Lettuce Entertain You family when it opens in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood (671 N. St. Clair) later this month. You may know us from our River North location, which was previously named one of Chicago Magazine’s “Best New Restaurants” in 2014; best known for our coffee program, pastries, cookies and healthy, seasonal menu options.
We look forward to carrying over Beatrix healthful signatures, comfort food and coffee program to Streeterville this fall in addition to some NEW and exciting additions. We spoke with the Beatrix team who dished on what diners can expect at the new location. Here are a few reasons that will wet your appetite:
The Market @ Beatrix.
This new addition to the Beatrix brand will focus on healthful grab-and-go selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The key is healthy fast! It will feature three cold bars, one hot entrée bar, fresh salads and soups. We will have a chocolate closet that includes gift boxes, nuts, snacks, bottled beverages and candies as well as offer healthy Beatrix comfort food dishes like: Quinoa Chili, Vegan Butternut Squash and Apple Soup, Green Enchiladas, Stuffed Peppers and more.
There’s a Coffee ‘Nook.’
Sit, chill, caffeinate, and stay awhile. This cozy area in our coffee bar will give guests the chance to come and hang, enjoy a coffee and pastry, get some work done and relax.
A Front Row Seat to see all the Action in the Kitchen.
Ever wonder how the chefs work their magic on your menu favorites? Beatrix will have an open kitchen so guests can get a behind-the-scenes look at the restaurant line and all the prep that goes into The Market items and the bakery.
To Book Your Next Event in The Private Dining Space.
The private event space can accommodate up to 40 guests, which will be great for social and business gatherings. It is equipped with A/V and flexible seating to accommodate boardroom-style meetings. Beatrix will also unveil an outdoor café that seats 100+ diners and service both The Market and the restaurant (opening spring 2016).
When it comes to making weekend plans, brunch is everything and the rest is just details. The new restaurant will offer Beatrix brunch favorites and some new dishes including a Baked Apple French Toast, Pumpkin and Avocado Toast and the Greens and Grains Bowl.
New Seasonal Dishes.
We’ve got some awesome new fall dishes coming onto the menu including: Brown Rice Porridge with Bartlett Pear, Cauliflower Grits with Crispy brussels Sprouts, Brioche-crusted Branzino with Mushroom ver jus, Slow-braised Short Rib and a Basil Seed Lemonade.
Of Course, There will be Pie.
Fear not… the Oh My! Caramel Pie, one of Beatrix staple desserts will be available in Streeterville among other of your favorite sweets and pastries.
Beatrix Streeterville will be located at 671 N. St. Clair, Chicago, IL, 60611. For more information and opening updates on Beatrix Streeterville, follow us on Instagram and Twitter at @BeatrixChicago, and be sure to like us on Facebook.
