Devour a Mediterranean Brunch at Cira
3 rd May 2019
Chicago certainly isn’t lacking in brunch options, but Cira promises to become one of your new favorites. Every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the chef churns out a mix of Mediterranean, Turkish, and American bites, the same type of cuisine that you’ll find on the lunch and dinner menus.
If you’re looking for something light, try the sweet-savory yogurt parfait with whipped tahini, a poppyseed crumble, and charred pineapple or the avocado toast with fennel slaw, za’atar spice, green garlic, and vinaigrette. For a more substantial meal, opt for a dish like the Turkish breakfast. It boasts a smorgasbord of marinated goat cheese, olives, sujuk, cucumber salad, a hard-boiled egg, and a handful of other bites to try. Familiar entrees such as a breakfast sandwich, French toast, and pancakes round out the brunch menu at Cira.
