Bistrot Margot (www.bistrotmargot.com) is one of Gareth’s and my favorite neighborhood spots. Located on Wells Street in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood, they serve up a variety of delicious French cuisine. Their dinner entrees can be a bit pricey, but their brunch menu is so affordable… and fabulous! Below are some of our favorite dishes.
TRADITIONNEL OEUFS BENEDICT: (I ordered without the Hollaindaise and potatoes) 2 poached eggs atop English muffin & Canadian bacon with Hollandaise, served with home style potatoes and haricots verts $7.95
BISTROT SALAD: Boston lettuce, spinach, bacon, egg, walnut vinaigrette $4.95
CROQUE MONSIEUR A LA MARGOT: Grilled country ham and Gruyere cheese served Parisian style with pommes frites $8.95
BISTROT BLOODY MARY

LEG OF LAMB: Sliced and served with roasted potatoes and roasted vegetables.
ROASTED HAM: Served with sweet potato gratin and haricots verts in a mustard sauce.
PROFITEROLES: Made with vanilla ice cream and topped with rich chocolate sauce.
BREAD PUDDING: In a warm sauce made with Grand Marnier and topped with vanilla ice cream.
