One of Chicago's best restaurants is emerging from lockdown today. Lula Cafe, a Logan Square stalwart since 1999, is back in action with a to-go menu that highlights its many strengths. For the uninitiated, that means farm-fresh produce, epic breakfast burritos and knockout desserts.

Lula at Home is available for pickup exclusively on Tock, with brunch boxes, farm dinners and wine and beer to go. With pickup windows available from 10am to 1pm, brunch includes your choice of Lula's famous breakfast burrito or a tofu-veggie scramble, both served with fresh greens and a sweet treat from award-winning pastry chef Emily Spurlin.

Dinner is available from 5 to 8pm and plays on Lula's regular Monday Night Farm Dinner, a beloved series that highlights the season's best ingredients. To kick things off, chef Jason Hammel is featuring two options for supper: classic and vegetarian/gluten-free. The classic menu includes herbed focaccia with green garlic butter, grilled asparagus with spicy peanuts, braised beef with farro and carrot cake. For vegetarians and gluten-free diners, expect to be feasting on spring radishes with green garlic butter, grilled asparagus with spicy peanuts, red lentils with cauliflower and tapioca pudding with berry jam. Parents will be delighted to see that there are two kids meals to choose from, too: rigatoni pasta with parmesan and herbed chicken tenders—both packaged with a side of veggies and dessert.

On the booze front, Lula is opening its cellar with to-go bottles of crémant, rosé and chardonnay—all priced between $18 and $38. You can also toss in a can or two of beer, with a handful of options ranging from PBR to Glutenberg blonde ale.

Lula Cafe's to-go fare is available for curbside, contactless pickup Thursday through Monday—just be sure to reserve your spot in advance (they're going quick).
