Beatrix is a neighborhood restaurant, coffeehouse and meeting place located in Chicago’s River North. 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, as well as brunch on Saturday and Sundays.

All pastries, breads and sweets are baked in house daily. Some of our favorites include Sadie's Crunch Cake, Honey Butter Cinnamon Buns and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Our coffee and tea program will showcase two iconic Chicago roasters, Intelligensia and Metropolis and specialty offerings like Nitro, Bulletproof, and more!

Terrible service. Took over an hour to get our main dishes. Had to repeatedly ask for water and drinks to be filled. Food was ok at best. Tuna tartare was good, brussle sprouts were over dressed and under cooked. Egg plant was fine.

Been here a few times. Always great. This time not so much. As I was enjoying by Chia Cereal Bowl, I chewed and pulled out a very long hair. I decided not to finish it. Hopefully, that was a one-time incident.

I rated it all a three (good) with the assumption that 3 is just ok. The food descriptions and ingredients were interesting but the chicken was mushy and not much taste, the meatloaf was very bland. the hummus was ordinary, the pita tasted like it came from a package, but my wife really enjoyed the beets.

Our server did not bring avocado we ordered and we had to waive her down to let her know because she did not follow up to see how our meal was. We also requested a glass of OJ that our server never brought but charged us for on the bill. When we brought the OJ to her attention she was apologetic and took the charge off the bill but again she never came by to ask if everything was okay during the meal.

It’s very possible she had to many tables to attend to because when she did attend to our table she was very professional.

It was SO HOT in the restaurant. They need better air circulation. I'd definitely not recommend to go there on a warm summer day.

It was the hottest day of the year in Chicago the day I dined yet the restaurant had their windows open. They closed like halfway through my meal, but very warm and uncomfortable till then.

Looking for a relatively healthy menu with open reservations on the 4th of July. We came across Beatrix on the Open Table app. The food was excellent. We were walking around in the heat and I was ready for a cocktail. I had the blueberry Tom Collins and it was fantastic! My wife had a Sangria and our daughter had a fresh juice, and both of them were very pleased with their drinks. The server was very attentive, and the food came out promptly.

The special entrée was a arugula, black rice, and mango salad that was delicious. I would order it again. The hummus appetizer was also tasty and the server asked if we preferred bread or vegetables with it, and we liked both options so he brought both. The service was prompt and professional. The wine pours seemed light, but the waiter made it right.
