Last week, Mr. Foodwhore and I celebrated our 4th anniversary. We played hookey from our jobs, went to brunch and spent the day walking around downtown, looking at the Tulips and all of the other beautiful things in bloom. It was a lovely day.
We started things off by eating at Orange. The menu looked delicious, but we were sold on the two specials: an omelet with apples, brie, onions and ham, and a pancake flight. What is a pancake flight, you may be thinking. It's a sample plate of four different kinds of pancakes: raspberry cheesecake, blueberries and cream, apple cranberry, and sweet potato and coconut. I'm usually a savory breakfast person, but the flight looked just too good to pass up. And it didn't disappoint. I didn't even need syrup!
Orange has several locations, but we went to the one on N Clark Street. It was just a short walk from there to the Water Tower in the heart of Mag Mile. While this location is BYOB, they didn't even charge us the advertised $3 fee. We brought our own champagne and ordered a large OJ to make our own mimosas. (I love this city!) The atmosphere was nice, the service was friendly. I only wish they'd had their patio open so we could have enjoyed the beautiful morning. We'll definitely be back.
