Latin American | West Loop, Chicago

I really enjoyed having brunch at this place. Especially when you want to go with a big group, this place is very accommodating. The only issue I had was that my service was slow. Staff was friendly and the owner is super friendly too but I think they were understaffed or something that my food took 2 hours to come. The bottomless mimosas helped. More

Beautiful space that feels great when you walk in. Upstairs is a surprise that is somehow elegant and cozy. $6 prosecco happy hour special comes in a 1920s punch style glass...perfect for their Tuesday jazz night. Singer did great soulful covers summoning up a sound between Michael Jackson and Erykah Badu. A little difficult to have a conversation at times but great energy midweek. Servers asked about food allergies and made sure to communicate that with their team which I really appreciate. Just wondering when I can make time to go back! More

We were at the United Center and had a break in the action from the Big ten basketball tournament and chose Eden because of its proximity to the game. What an unexpected delight!
