    Perfect for sipping a basil gimlet while gazing at River North street action. Check out well-wrought flatbread pizzas; salads are equally inventive and pretty as a picture. Read more

    The have an amazing burger! Their Elate Burger has creamed leeks and applewood bacon. Even without the extras the quality of the meat is Grade A and tastes great! Definitely recommend.

    Try the Mini Beignets - Omg! Move over Cafe du Monde and take note. These are the best ever Beignets! And a steal at $6. Light balls of lusciousness @Elaterest

    Have been dying to try the Baby Spinach Salad Skewers w/ molten egg & pork rinds - we ordered a second one! And the Elate Angus Burger was delicious w/ creamed leeks & bacon. YUM

    Tack $20 to the price of a brunch entree (such as banana custard French toast), and Mom can get a little tipsy on bottomless mimosas.

    Try the Roasted Sunchoke Romaine Salad - This is the best salad in the world. It's featured on their restaurant week menu. Will be sad to see it end.

    Jordan, "like the country" watron is awsome. Trust me/Jordan: order brussel sprouts dish. Trout entree. Tartar. Beet dish. Pasta. The flavors! I'd never order this stuff before. Love Elate New GM.

    We'd love to go everywhere during Restaurant Week but can't. Show us what you think we should eat the next time we're at Elate with a picture of your dish. Tweet it to us @motorola. Happy eating!

    Quiche is worth the 15-minute wait. Flaky puff pastry is topped with buttery egg filling and roasted, seasoned vegetables. Read more

    Server/busboy had his thumb in my salad's truffle cream and then kind of chastised me for not getting it with chicharron (I'm vegetarian). Boo. Corn soup was phenomenal but I won't be going back.

    Food stops at 11 and in general so does the fun. It's a mix between slow bar and loud lounge; gains no credit.
