Restaurant for Two: Osteria La Madia, Lunch & Dinner Edition

Restaurant for Two: a feature where I bring a friend to a restaurant and we write a review together. Coworker and friend, L’Oreal, and I loved everything we ate at Osteria La Madia! She’s a blogger, too, so she helped contribute to this post.

Restaurant for Two: Osteria La Madia

Restaurant for Two: a new feature where I bring a friend to a restaurant and we write a review together. Thanks to my main squeeze for joining me at Osteria La Madia!

Here in Chicago, we’re spoiled for choice of brunch places. If you’ve taken advantage of the city’s new happy hour specials, then you’re probably familiar with Osteria la Madia’s killer deals and awesome pizza. But did you know that it’s also home to a delicious Italian brunch that deserves a top spot on your Chicago brunch bucket list?

Osteria la Madia is one of those brunch spots where a good conversation is just as accessible as a good mimosa. And, thank the brunch gods: the mimosas and bellinis here are spot on. Fresh-pressed juices are served with Italian prosecco for a classic pairing.
