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, as well as brunch on Saturday and Sundays.

All pastries, breads and sweets are baked in house daily. Some of our favorites include Sadie's Crunch Cake, Honey Butter Cinnamon Buns and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Our coffee and tea program will showcase two iconic Chicago roasters, Intelligensia and Metropolis and specialty offerings like Nitro, Bulletproof, and more!

Service and food are amazing!!! Best Bloody Mary in a long time!!! It’s LOUD when busy, which seems to be the new norm for restaurants. Can be difficult to have conversations depending on table location.

The restaurant was exceptionally accommodating of my sons special dietary needs. The manager made an effort to come to our table prior to ordering and review our list of foods and options. The service was excellent. First time we’ve eaten at a restaurant since Disney! The adult drinks were yummy. Food was good. We’ll be back.

I love Beatrix and visit this restaurant often! Amazing food and original cocktails. The menu is also fairly healthy for anyone counting calories. Would definitely recommend. Can't go wrong with a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant.

Love Beatrix. Food is consistently delicious and inventive without being too out there (or just putting blue cheese or cilantro on everything). The servers are also consistently the nicest and most knowledgeable. Tip for families: make a reservation, also the kids menu has the most amazing deals!

Best bacon every. Followed by wonderful eggs and a very flaky croissant. On the downside, dreadful hash browns, below average coffee. Meh service. Not very expensive, but not very good, either. Probably will not return, no hard feelings, though!

This was a very disappointing experience. The sea bass was luke warm and very bland with no sides or accompaniments. Overpriced and uninteresting. Our waiter was nice and the bartender helpful. The bakery had some good choices.

Visited Chicago for my birthday weekend, and this was by far the best restaurant pick of the whole weekend. Went to Beatrix for Saturday brunch. Made a reservation in advance so we didn't need to wait at all. Loved the decor, atmosphere, service and food. Enjoyed the juice/cocktail options and the meal.

This has been my go to breakfast place since it opened and this was the first time they fell down . This is all attributed to a bad waitress who was checked out , got our order wrong , never came by the inquire if everything was ok - just dropped off the check . Everything was the usual - nice check in, hostess nice. A very easy and Usually delicious place for a meal .
