Beatrix is a neighborhood restaurant, coffeehouse and meeting place located in Chicago’s Streeterville. 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 Angel Food Cake Muffins, Honey Butter Cinnamon Rolls and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Our coffee and tea program will showcase two iconic Chicago roasters, Intelligentsia and Metric.

Our first experience here was terrific but when we came back this time we had to return the turkey meatloaf twice because it was ice cold. Finally it came out at the right temp and was delicious.

Food and service is exceptional during our Brunch visit. However, improvements are needed for take out at the cafe and bar are needed. Service is terrible with uninterested staff.

Lovely brunch! Aside from not being able to order a mimosa with brunch (there's a law that alcohol cannot be served before 10:00a.m.), everything was absolutely wonderful. Tasty, healthy portions and all served with a fabulous attitude and desire for the entire experience to be positive. Remember to grab some pastry items to bring home on your way out as well!

First time visit. Very impressed with food quality and choices. Excellent service. We ended up with a table by the kitchen but despite the noise, I got a good view into all the deliciousness coming out of that kitchen.

Wonderful selection of menu options at Beatrix to appeal to a variety of diners. The service was attentive and professional. Although the restaurant was full, we were able to carry on our conversations and never felt rushed. The atmosphere is contemporary and is as inviting as the food they serve. Will go back again, good go to place when visiting Michigan Ave.

I love this place and is always a great idea, but sadly this day wasn’t the best idea, the server wasn’t in a good mood, it was my birthday and for being honest I was in shock, it took him more than 15 minutes to just bring the water, the glasses smell HORRENDOUS, it wasn’t the normal excellent service that I experienced at this place before. I think it was just a bad day. The food amazing as always.

In the world of Streeterville, Beatrix tries hard to be the red-headed step-child with mixed results. A few items are worthy of a second look; and that's the rub; there are too few of those. One notable exception, is the Caramelized Pork Shank. The cider reduction is thick, rich, and a perfect accompaniment to the whipped Yukon Gold potatoes, Braeburn apples, and roasted sweet potatoes. My brother-in-law's Keto adventure with the burger was neither spectacular, nor disappointing, it.just.was. My better half enjoyed her Chicken Bebe, what there was of it; Beatrix isn't known for being generous with their portions.

I really want to like Beatrix; this was our 2nd time; and it will be our last.

Experience wasn’t great. I ordered scrambled eggs, hash browns and toast. My husband ordered cauliflower grits and liked his. Waiter said eggs normally come medium cooked and that was fine for him. My husband loved his food. My eggs were very undercooked. Waiter came back and said they are cooked soft scramble. Wondering why he didn’t tell me that when I ordered when he asked my husband how he wanted them cooked. He should have asked us both. They made new ones without a problem. Then we over heard a different waitress tell another table there was a French toast special. Our waiter never told us about this and I would have ordered that. We had already gotten our food by then. Juices were good. The hash browns were crispy on the outside but very mushy on the inside. Some of the worst I’ve had. Just not sure what went wrong with this very simple dish.

We have recently had two friends at different times in the hospitals in Streeterville, and we had been looking for a reasonably priced place to eat with interesting food... After several disappointments, we found Beatrix-Streeterville: it was GREAT! They have a very interesting menu, the service is good, and we could actually talk with each other without shouting. Clearly, we'll be going back whenever we're in the area, visiting hospitals or not!
