Cheap Eats: River North

Now that PPM has our first building in River North, @ 55 W. Chestnut, we thought we should explore the neighborhood! First on our list – find an affordable, casual, fresh place for lunch – we found the perfect place – Brett’s Kitchen @ the corner of Superior and Orleans. We love the casual cafe style décor with the impressive menu scrawled out on a huge blackboard. The employees here are cool and funny! Cute, cafe decor—we love the bowls arranged in rainbow order on the shelves around the perimeter. Brett’s has a grand total of 7 smallish tables, so lunchtime can be a bit snug. But, the cooks are lightning fast!  We were served in 4 minutes!


We loved the reuben sandwich. It was piled high w/ meat and kraut w/ a little tub of thousand island on the side. The grilled buttery bread was perfect – simply delicious!

The turkey sandwich was perfection!  Freshly carved turkey w/ crunchy super fresh vegetables framed with soft multi-grain bread – VERY TASTY!

We can’t wait to go back and try breakfast – we heard from the regulars that it is awesome!   Oh, and YES they deliver!
