CHIReview

It’s not often we enthusiastically recommend a restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But Roux, a counter-service New Orleans-inspired spot in Hyde Park, is a great choice for all three meals. The restaurant is large, bright, and perfect for getting some work done over coffee and beignets, a Sunday brunch filled with fluffy biscuits and gravy, or a weeknight dinner of shrimp and creamy grits. The entire menu is available all day long, and there’s a pastry case up front full of incredible baked goods, like a gigantic cinnamon roll where each bite somehow tastes like the gooey center—which everyone knows is the best part.
