If you ever ate Sarah Stegner’s food during her much-lauded tenure as chef of the Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton, you understand how happy we are that we don’t have to sell a kidney anymore to eat her food. We’ll even endure the drive to the ’burbs to dig into garlicky, vinegary skirt steak topped with sautéed ’shrooms; her housemade lamb sausage with sweet fennel and warm goat cheese; and her mom’s seasonal pie selection. Great, comforting food we can eat while wearing jeans—perfect.

Brunch it up in the burbs with James Beard award winner chef, Sarah Stegner. This family friendly spot serves up locally centered food. Best bets include fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes or cheesy chilaquiles. Only downside is the feel of it being in another country if you live anywhere south of Irving Park.
