Try the Braised Pork and Egg Tostada for brunch - delish!
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.
Steampunk Thursday was good. Nice music and riesling.
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 Skate Wing With Beluga Lentils, Onion Soubise, Thyme, & Capers - Perfectly done, tasty & lentils were great too. Could have eaten more. Loved it.
Try the Roasted Chicken With Root Vegetables, Celery Root & Farro - Succulent chicken, perfectly cooked. Very juicy & wonderful. Love the root veggies & Farro.
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!
Check out the amazing lounge vibe at "Late At Elate" on Fridays and Saturdays. Always a good time.
Try the spinach skewer with molten egg. Very tasty.
The pork belly Benedict is awesome! Plus bottomless mimosas for $20
This place rocks, its seriously amazing. Get the dessert that tastes like a Girl Scout Samoa cookie!
For something spicy and refreshing, get the Jalepeno-Strawberry Caiporoska.
They were a great spot for our event last year! We had a spot along the way for @dtdash '10 here last year (formerly #fijihunt)
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.
No vegan food and the servers don't even know what vegan means.
$20 bottomless mimosas and and decent food makes for a great brunch. Try the crème brûlée pancakes!
The bottomless mimosas are a great way to start your day.
So the steak and eggs and the french toast is AMAZING!
Try the Pimms Cup, its out iof this world!
Trying new menu
Can't go wrong with the black bean burger and always get a dessert! The chef here is amazing and super friendly!
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
Half off food and btls of wine today!
Get off your phone and pay attention to the person across from you! :)

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.
stay tuned for an upcoming tweetup here #fijihunt
Chicago agent magazine photoshoot was here and you can find #fijihunt hotprop team in the mag! Suzie makes good drinks too!
Basil Gimlet is the best
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.
Their seasonal menu has the best cocktail "Sugar Plum" you have to find out when it's offered - best specialty cocktail in the city!
If you are looking for decent service, don't sit at the bar.
Try the $3 bar menu! You can't go wrong.
