Choose Between Two Options

  • $40 for a three-course, prix-fixe Sunday brunch for two (an $82.90 value)
  • $80 for a three-course, prix-fixe Sunday brunch for four (a $165.80 value)

While sipping a mimosa or bloody mary, a cup of coffee, and glass of orange juice, diners each choose one appetizer and one entree from the prix-fixe brunch menu, available Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Begin with starters of steamed Prince Edward Island mussels or traditional onion soup with emmental and grand cru gruyère cheeses. Then dive into a main course such as the croque-madame with a fried egg and mornay sauce. For the third course, each pair shares a pain perdu. Like the number of burned-out bulbs on the Eiffel Tower, menu items may vary.

Bistro Bordeaux

“Pascal, these are all the good times I had in my life.” According to Chicago magazine, these were the words spoken to Bistro Bordeaux owner Pascal Berthoumieux by his grandfather as he inherited his grandfather’s collection of decades-old wine labels. A native of the bistro's namesake region, Berthoumieux has gone out of his way to create a dining experience similar to one you'd have in the south of France—with a wine list that lets guests rack up their own good times. He's decorated the yellow walls with vintage posters and family antiques, and his team of attentive waiters wears black vests, bow ties, and long white aprons designed to protect them from flying escargot shells. Executive Chef Michael Gottli uses seasonal ingredients from local farmers and merchants to craft classic French dishes, which made the bistro a Time Out Chicago critics' pick. They lauded the “ideal” french-onion soup and "the juicy seared flatiron Sirloin steak served with truly addictive frites."

Aside from drawing from his wealth of family traditions, Berthoumieux built his restaurant on a foundation of hard work. He's hung his hat at such eateries as Man Ray, a Parisian eatery formerly owned by celebrities including Johnny Depp and Sean Penn, and Chicago's own Tip Top Tap lounge and Kiki's Bistro. His years of experience served him well when creating Bistro Bordeaux; among other awards, the establishment was named one of Chicago magazine's Best New Restaurants in 2010.

    “The eggs were either too soft (raw) or too hard (hard broiled) ;( It was one dessert per couple, which was a little odd expecially during this time of the flu and cold season. I will say the onion soup was amazing and the staff is very attendent. ”
