I rarely get weekends off, but when I do I make sure I go out to brunch. It’s such a luxury for me these days! This past Saturday I went to check out Crio, a latin-inspired restaurant, with my buddy Wayne and I have to say…it was one of the best brunches I’ve ever had!
First off, the space is beautiful. It was kind of a dreary day, but inside Crio it was cheery! I love any restaurant with good natural light and exposed brick walls. Not to mention there was a display of paper flowers! It definitely perked morning right up!
Next came the brunch drinks. Of course I had coffee. I ALWAYS have coffee. But Crio also has bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, you guys! Of course I opted for the bloody mary, they’re my favorite. Their bloody mary has cucumber-infused vodka which gave it a nice fresh taste and it was just the right amount of spicy. One of my favorite bloody marys ever, and that’s saying something!
Then Wayne and I ordered four of the most delicious brunch items to share. It was all so good that I wanted to cry tears of happiness. Don’t worry, I refrained.
Everything is made fresh, nothing is ever frozen. You can definitely tell that there is a lot of love and work put into each individual dish. Everything was so amazingIf you’re looking for a low-key brunch spot with delicious food and drinks, look no further. Crio is well-priced, delicious, with a very friendly and helpful staff. They are located at 2506 N Clybourn Ave and are open for brunch Saturday and Sunday 10:00-3:00.
