    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.

    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

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

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.
