Breakfast at The Lobby, The Peninsula Chicago~

Never love a wild thing…[Others] may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Good morning, if your reading, “You’re wonderful. Unique. I love you” Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Each foodtiq review shares my taste-adventure by connecting the dining experience to the character of a strong, female icon. For today’s post, the  plan was to feature Julie Andrews but how could I pass on using Audrey Hepburn (again) for this particular Breakfast at The Lobby? Thematically, it would be a terrible injustice to use anyone else for this breakfast affair. As a wild thing, I do what inspires me and what feels natural~

Today’s Menu:

Pâtisserie extraordinaire A Pretty, Tasting Gallery Small cakes, tiered cakes, chocolate gâteaux, macarons, tarts~

Each time I visit the Peninsula, I have a routine: I stop by Pierrot Gourmet to see the cake gallery. It is my fun, artsy  appreciation for the hard-work and meticulous attention to the science of baking. In this case, the pastries are just as tasty as they look. No deception here. After some sweet, ocular pleasure, I head next door and take the elevator to what is consistently, the best, le petit déjeuner in town. On this visit, a combination of great company, wonderful weather, and a strong appetite made me inexplicably, happy to brekkie~

The hardest part of anything is making a dish consistently great- you order it seven years later, if it’s still on the menu, and it’s still as good as what you remember. -Chef Mario Batali

The Lobby is one of those rare gems, that gets it right, every time.

The Lobby in the Peninsula, Chicago is bound to be stellar if you decide to visit. The hotel and its dining has maintained its reputation as impeccable primarily for its consistent level of service.  This visit was no exception. For this and many other devine reasons, I crown The Lobby foodtiq, chic. The ambiance and Peninsula culture will make you want to dine there all day~
