Broadway Cellars

Neighborhood restaurants—meaning, the ones whose patrons almost all live within a few blocks of the place—can and should be held to different standards than those restaurants-of-the-moment that draw people from all over the city. Broadway Cellars is a neighborhood restaurant so we'll judge it on neighborhood-restaurant criteria: The service is exceedingly friendly and especially accommodating to small children; the space is warm and welcoming; and the food is good enough to make you a regular (don't miss the short-rib mac and cheese and the Bill Clinton burger). This place hits all the marks, then goes for the bonus round, with ample outdoor seating and a solid weekend brunch.

Great food! Affordable prices. Love that they have events and musicians periodically.


Summer is the time for outdoor patios, and this place has one of the most adorable outdoor patios ever. Whenever I need a good long bike ride and a desire to be near the lake, I head towards Edgewater to this local favorite. I've only ever been there for brunch, but the brunch is awesome. You can get $10 all you can drink mimosas or bloody marys, which I promise you are very very often refilled, sometimes without my even noticing and I wonder why I'm buzzed when I get up. The banana caramel french toast was my most recent treat, and it was nothing short of a perfect sweet ending to our 2 hours hangout brunch. Frank Sinatra played somewhere in the distance, a farmer's market was a stone's throw away. I ordered what i always order, a smoked salmon potato pancake benedict - a Jewish girl's dream of a breakfast. The staff were ridiculously friendly,and you just get the whole family restaurant neighborhood feel. Definitely recommend for a tucked away amazing brunch spot, it's worth the venturing out if you don't live in the neighborhood, because you can go to the beach right after! :)
