We stopped in the new Mortar & Pestle @ 3108 N. Broadway for lunch and we thought it was AWESOME!
We loved the laid pack contemporary décor and the staff was super attentive and welcoming -BUT the star here is the food!
The cuisine updates American classics with global influences and definitely elevates the flavors.
We were tempted by the intriguing breakfast menu but we decided to do lunch AND WE WERE HAPPY WE DID!
First of all, up until now we have thought DMK Burger has the best French fries – NOW we know that title goes to Mortar and Pestle! They are perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection – DELICIOUS!
We tried two sandwiches – the Decadent Grilled Cheese and the Patty Melt – in a word UNBELEIVABLE!
Top of the line juicy burger and perfectly grilled onions with a super creamy special sauce topped perfectly with grilled rye bread!
Decadent Grilled Cheese
Ride avocado, crispy bacon, a plethora of melted cheeses and a big juicy slice of tomato between two crunchy slices of bread – WHO WOULD NOT LOVE IT!
Run don’t walk to this new Lakeview treasure – a chef driven, upper scale brunch, casual laid back joint that is BYOB for now! Make sure to check out our blog on Chicago Holiday Activities!
