The summer of 2016 has been great thus far for the Chicago Bitches. We have hosted and attended a few fabulous parties and galas, had the pleasure of working and collaborating with awesome bloggers and female business women, and we have, of course, eaten some fantastic brunches around town.

Any occasion to get together with the Chicago Bitches is awesome. Last month, Allison and I spent a Sunday running around town with Social Bitch, Amber, hunting for the best doughnuts in the city for our 2016 guide. And this past weekend, Allison and got together for brunch at Bull & Bear in River North to welcome our newest addition to our team.

I am elated to introduce, Caitlin, our new Baby Bitch in Chicago! Cait will be providing fabulous guides every month to we all know where to brunch, what to wear, and where to party here in Chitown.

Bull & Bear Brunch

My wonderful friend and PR extraordinaire, Morgan, had invited me to check out the brunch at Bull & Bear, one of her clients. I had actually been there before for brunch, I just had never blogged about it. I had a great experience the first time so I was excited to go back, and decided to bring my Bitches with me for a team meeting and introduction.

Bull & Bear has an awesome bottomless brunch that debuted earlier this summer—$30 gets you bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary’s in addition to a brunch entree—talk about a sweet deal! We were all excited and promptly ordered a round of drinks; a Bloody for me, and two mimosas for my fellow Chicago ladies.

Also to start, we ordered the calamari. I had this appetizer last time I was here and was craving it again. I should mention before I continue my review, that on this particular day, it was one of the hottest days of the year; heat index of 100 plus degrees. But for the sake of lighting, we opted to sit outside, all in the name of Instagram-worthy #brunchgoals photography.

The calamari was yummy; crisp and buttery, but after a few minutes and bites, we were through and ready to order brunch.

For entrees, I opted for the Something Healthy omelette made with egg whites, sauteed spinach, feta cheese, tomatoes, and a side of whole wheat toast. To my surprise, it also came with fresh fruit, watermelon and orange slices. The omelette was light, but a little too greasy for me considering it was the healthy option. Nonetheless I was happy with my choice.

Caitlin decided upon the cheddar sausage biscuit, which was made with a cheddar-bacon biscuit, Irish cheddar, homemade sausage, and came with a side of honey butter.

Allison went with the brunch burger, a beef burger topped with arugula, tomatoes, a fried egg, spiked ketchup, and bacon on a brioche bun. It looked bomb!

At this point in our meal, we had been defeated by the sun, gave up and moved inside to enjoy our meals. It was a great choice, it was so much more pleasant to enjoy our hot food in the cool air conditioned space. The restaurant had really filled up at this point; it was lively with large groups of people throughout the restaurant enjoying their Saturday brunch as well.

Both Allison and Caitlin enjoyed their breakfast sandwiches. Allison noted that she really loved the sharpness the arugula added to the burger.

Bull & Bear’s bottomless brunch is the perfect way to spend a Saturday, especially during summer. We weren’t the only people to brave the heat and sit on the patio. It is a lovely space that is perfect to relax in while enjoying mimosas. For a rowdier brunch, head indoors, where that have awesome booths with built-in table taps for you to pour your own beer.

This Bitches Say: B+. Bull & Bear is a perfect place for friends to gather for brunch and take advantage of a sweet bottomless mimosas deal. The food is good too, and offers a variety of brunch dishes to suite everyone.
