Easter weekend we went to Chicago to babysit the grand kids and see their parents too. Jackson wants to be a train engineer when he grows up. He LOVES trains. So we took the train from Highland Park to Evanston for brunch.
And ended up at the Lucky Platter on Main St.
Oh yes, this place had Rae written all over it. (Lower left has little Alex peeking out the window.)
And the art... total kitsch. I am a total sucker for paint-by-number paintings. If I lived in a loft I would cover a wall from floor to ceiling in them. Also many interesting portraits. Some that looked like things I painted in high school, as a freshman.
And hanging art... and oh, the colander chandeliers. So much to look at.
And the food is pretty and tasty too. I had the Crab Cake Benedict. Homemade crab cake with garlic aioli, spinach, hollandaise on toasted cornbread. Yum. If you are in the area I recommend it.
