Where we've featured it
You know your friend who’s very nice and never has anything bad to say about anyone? Whose aggressive cheerfulness is kind of annoying, but you’re still glad they’re in your life? Beatrix is that friend. The wide-ranging menu is perfect when you need something reliable, kind of healthy, and perfectly fine to settle on when none of your first five ideas panned out. Sit outside and entertain yourself by watching all the Uber XLs drop off West Loop’s finest at Aba next door. See if that finally makes your nice friend roll their eyes.
Beatrix works well for a variety of situations - for instance, lunch with someone you don’t know very well. But since the well-rounded menu has lots of salads, grains, and things like bulgur wheat poke bowls, it’s a particularly good choice for a sit-down meal when you’re looking for something kind of healthy.
Beatrix locations are popping up in Chicago like mushrooms, and we’re not mad that this versatile restaurant is now in the West Loop. The well-rounded menu has solid options for brunch, lunch, and dinner, and many of the dishes fall into the “health conscious” category. It’s a great choice for catching up with your gluten-free friend - or if you don’t want to undo the spin class you just took with brunch at The Publican. We even like stopping by for coffee at their cafe. It’s an agreeable choice for all situations.
