A word from Beatrix
Beatrix is a neighborhood restaurant, coffeehouse and meeting place located in Chicago’s River North. Our chef partners Susan Weaver, Rita Dever and John Chiakulas have created a menu inspired by food made in Lettuce’s test kitchen.

Beatrix is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night offerings.

All pastries, breads and sweets are baked in house daily. Some of our favorites include Seeded Rye English Muffins, Honey Butter Cinnamon Buns and Thin & Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies. Our coffee and tea program will showcase two iconic Chicago roasters, Intelligensia and Metropolis.

Diner Reviews
  • "Beatrix was an AMAZING experience! The food was to die for and the service was nothing short of professional. I'd been looking forward to visiting and will definitely be back!"

  • "My husband and I were looking for a place last minute and luckily there were reservations available. When we got there they told us there was a 15minute delay on reservations and they would message us when they were ready for us. Exactly 15min later, once we grabbed a drink at the bar, my phone buzzed. A table was ready inside and as we sat down my husband requested if the outside was available. The hostess said that all night it had been a long wait. A few minutes later she returned and said "surprisingly we had a table open up outside, are you still interested?" We enjoyed the outdoor weather, unfortunately it was loud because of the hotel next door and people out on a Friday night. Overall we were happy with everything!"

  • "I've been to Beatrix 3 times now and I've enjoyed all of my visits. I love the variety of options on the menu as well as the seasonality. I've tried their fish (Branzino and Salmon) and they do that very well. Their chicken is amazing. Sometimes their combinations of flavors are unusual, but I've loved them every time. The Oh My! Caramel pie is to die for! Coupled with the bakery and coffee options, they are hard to beat. Love that they serve Bulletproof coffee! It's my absolute favorite!!! I hope they keep up the good work. ;o)"

  • "I was at a conference, couldn't go to dinner so I offered my reservation to some colleagues hoping they would like it. They had a great time and really enjoyed their meal. Also enjoyed walking around the lively neighborhood back to hotel."

  • "My daughter and I went there to celebrate her birthday. My daughter is a waitress, and she said our waitress was the BEST. Loved her. Loved the open windows, food, water bottles, chairs, temperature, friendliness; great dining experience."

  • "Took my husband here for a birthday celebration Not quite the atmosphere for a romantic dinner but food was phenomenal! We sat in comfy chairs at a small table and were able to have a great breeze coming in from their open wall. Our waiter was a perfect blend of attention and charm. I recommended this to my daughter as a must go. Their chicken bebe was melt in your melt! My husband had the chili chocolate glazed salmon and it was delicious. His dessert- the talk, dark & handsome chocolate cake was much lighter than expected with the mousse filling. We had an enjoyable dinner."

  • "Beatrix is my go-to restaurant for meeting with friends or colleagues during the work week. The menu is nicely balanced light fare for those who have a busy afternoon and don't want to overdo it, and upscale comfort food for those who need a big meal to fuel the rest of their day. The atmosphere is great, the food is delicious, the service is impeccable. I'm eager to give Beatrix a try for dinner one evening when I'm in River North."

  • "We had dinner outside with 2 adults and 2 kids. The menu isn't necessarily conducive to children, but the play area in the lobby works well. The waiter we had was especially wonderful to the 2 talkative kids, he was a gem! I had the kale salad and it was great, I'd order it again."

  • "This was my third time at Beatrix but my first dinner there. The appetizers - hummus and naan bread, and fries are amazing. My husband's main course was better than mine (the brioche crusted branzini) In fact it was delicious. The desserts, we tried the Vanilla bean kulfi and the tall dark and handsome chocolate cake were both fantastic. The cake was light and not overly sweet. Just the way I like it! We happened to go on a night where there seemed to be multiple bachelorette parties at the restaurant, so it was pretty lively. Not the ideal environment for a romantic date night, but fun people watching. The drinks are always great. I had the blueberry and basil smash with a shot of vodka and it was really delicious!"

  • "Good food but be wary should you get seated in the bar. It's crowded and loud and, I suspect, poorer service than you might get in other parts of the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Capitalizing on the "farm to table" trend this high energy eatery is a fun spot to visit. Food is OK--though a touch trendy. Wait staff hopefully will mature with time and experience."

  • "For the past few months our team has been looking for a place to go that would be great for a nice brunch meeting. As soon as we were seated, it was decided that Beatrix would be our spot. The server was very attentive and the staff members were friendly. The music was little loud, but that was something that we quickly overlooked. I loved the follow up call to ensure that we were good to go with our reservation."

  • "Beatrix had a dedicated gluten-free menu that didn't require any concessions. The selections were broad, varied and most importantly delicious. My non GF companion had a great meal as well. Really good food!"

  • "Was the perfect meeting place for a family brunch on sunday. Noise level was a bit more than I expected - but not over the top. Food was very good and our server was delightful!"

  • "It's obviously a place for younger diners because as oldsters, we were struggling to hear each other talk. Of course, it's coupon season and Sunday's likely a madhouse."

  • "Brunch at Beatrix was delightful and delicious. The menu had old standbys but had some truly unusual and light options, too. Light, lemon pancakes were wonderful and the side of homemade turkey sausage made for a great meal. Wonderful Intelligentisia coffee rounded out our meal. We live nearby, but met friends who were in for the weekend. We will be back!!"

  • "This place has a wonderful Gluten Free Menu, making it an easy choice for my wife (Celiac Sufferer)."

  • "I had a great brunch at Beatrix, the fresh juice and quinoa cakes with poached eggs were delicious - I liked that their dishes are not too complex and the ingredients are of high quality. The dessert we had was just okay, but there were many other options. The service was wonderful, we lingered forever without being disturbed or pressured to leave. The decor, music, and ambience were also great."

  • "My husband and I each ordered separate braised dishes. He ordered the pork and and I ordered the pot roast. They were both so tender and juicy, they were delicious! I would go back for the pot roast alone! The waiter described the food as "healthy, reworked comfort food" and he was so right! They also had a great selection of cocktails to choose from and very friendly staff. Our experience was wonderful and the prices were great for the quality of food and service received."

  • "There are so many choices for eating out in Chicago, when family comes to visit, it's a bit intimidating to find the exact right choice to showcase what Chicago can do. We'd been to Beatrix before and liked it so much, we were looking for a reason to go back. The waiter was helpful with menu recommendations, and we had a wonderful meal!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Our food and service were excellent. Food is creative, but straight forward. Specialty juices, drinks, and wines are all great! The atmosphere is relaxing and pretty and the open walls/windows are perfect in nice weather. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "It's ironic. I'm from Detroit, not Chicago, but for a recent dinner with work colleagues (2 based in Chicago) I was confident that scheduling a dinner at Beatrix would not disappoint. Everyone had a great experience."

  • "We went for breakfast...an event we rarely do. Guests from out of town wanted breakfast. We went for hotel proximity. We waited 30' for a the buffet plate (no prep required), the oatmeal (no prep required), the salad (no prep required), the omelet (minimal prep required)....& never saw the waiter again to get a coffee refill until he presented the bill. The cooks were not idle, as I saw dish after dish leaving the open kitchen but no one around US was eating...it must have all gone outside. The chicken salad could have used more chicken & less arugula, the oatmeal would have been nicer hotter with more accoutrements than a few paltry dried cherries & a few grains of brown sugar & milk. & THAT'S WHY I DON'T GO OUT FOR BREAKFAST."

  • "Really loud loft space, lacking wine list, food just so-so."

  • "Ok, we skipped the pastries, so I should have made this a 4. In total, the food was just average for all the entrees, and definitely a step below some of the other peers in the area. Prices are good, and I'd love to dine here if I was staying at the aloft."

  • "We loved Beatrix! We went early with our 16 month old and they were very accommodating. The food was delicious and they had the walls down so you had the outdoor feel while still inside. I'd definitely go again."

Even my 12 year old grandson was pleased. The five of us were heading to the Wendella Boat tour and Beatrix was within easy walking distance of the boat."
