Gold Coast/Streeterville is a neighborhood that makes for great people-watching and when there is a restaurant located bang in the middle of such an area on a cross-street, it is the ideal spot to put your sunglasses on and watch not only people but the Ferraris and Lamborghinis that drive by. Tavern on Rush is my favourite people-watching spot in the city!
When we have friends or family visiting and the weather is cooperating, we find a table on the patio on a sunny day and spend a few hours brunching. It helps that they have great food too! They have a long wine list, the standard brunch cocktails and a variety of brunch options from fresh oysters-on-the-shell to eggs different ways and seasonal brunch dishes. The brunch menu also has healthier options like oatmeal and salads. It gets busy when the sun’s out in the summer and I definitely recommend reserving a table on the patio for a party of more than two.
