The next time we?re up late and out on the town, we?re skipping the greasy-spoon diner and addressing our pancake cravings the grown-up way at Lakeview?s Southport & Irving. The neighborhood bar and restaurant just launched a late-night brunch menu complete with Champagne cocktails and live jazz starting at 10 p.m., Thursdays through Sundays. Feast your eyes on the goods here. 

SIP Brunch 1

Come Hungry

The 2x2x2 comes with two of everything: farm-fresh eggs, maple andouille sausage patties and strawberry johnnycakes with heirloom grains served with molasses syrup.

SIP Brunch 2

Slurp Shamelessly

Wait, there’s ramen? Yes, and it has a lot going on: smoked Gunthrop ham, mushrooms, Korean leeks, crispy shallots, kimchee and a poached egg.

SIP Brunch 3

Be a Carnivore

We don’t get why this is a brunch thing, but the hanger steak is marinated in herby, garlicky chimichurri, so we’re fine with it.

SIP Brunch 4

Order Light

Fresh, poached asparagus topped with a duck egg, sea salt and lemon juice is a refreshing, refined way to end the night…

SIP Brunch 5

Don’t Forget a Nightcap

…unless you drink more than one grapefruit sparkler made with pamplemousse liqueur, lime juice, grapefruit juice and a splash of cava.
