This has been a favorite place of mine to eat lately, whether it be a late lunch (and my lunches usually are), or a Sunday brunch. Marge’s offers a concise menu of fresh salads (including my favorite: Grilled Salmon Salad), traditional hot sandwiches, great big burgers and some delish entrees (or so I’m told). My only dilemma in visiting Marge’s Still is that we usually go on a Sunday, when they offer their weekend brunch buffet — and it is enticingly hard to resist. Offered with or without a selection of breakfast plates (Eggs Benedict is the fav), the buffet includes fresh fruit, waffles, sausage links/bacon, bagels & lox, a selection of cold salads, and a variety of yummy desserts. Like I said: hard to resist. For this reason, I have yet to try most of the dinner entrees, although it is my firm intention to do so within the next year (at least).
One of the most enjoyable aspects of living in a city like Chicago is having quaint little restaurants, bars and boutiques like this in close proximity — you’d be hard-pressed not to fall in love with any one of the little neighborhoods surrounding the downtown area!
