Restaurant Review: Old Town Social

   Place: Old Town Social
   Location: 455 W. North Ave. Chicago, IL 60610
   Train: Brown Line to Sedgwick (quick five min walk from train)
   Parking: Valet, metered street parking

  On my birthday February 6, 2011 mom and I went to a place called Old Town Social. I had a gift certificate for a free brunch for two. So naturally mom and I decided that my birthday would be the best time to go. When we got there it was just after 11am, there were very few people there. The atmosphere was very chill, the space was really warm and welcoming there was plenty of space. They have a great sized bar plenty of seating and tables, theres a couple of private booths, an elevated dining area and a more intimate dining area. By the time we got our food the place started getting busy, the tables around us soon started to fill up. 

  The food was fresh, and really filling, I had waffles with fresh made sausage and one organic scrambled egg. Mom had steak eggs and pancakes, the portions were perfect. We also had mimosas and coffee, everything was was made just as we requested. It was a great brunch and mom and I would go there again in a heartbeat. The hostess the wait staff and servers were all welcoming and friendly. The manager Vince is really cool at first they were like we may not be able to honor the certificate because it was Super Bowl Sunday and it did say on the cert. that it was not valid on holidays or special events. BUT it was my birthday and they were totally cool about it!!

Sorry,  mom and I we were supposed to take pics while there ... we didn't! We did take fun pics on the train I will post those soon. 

  I also think Old Town Social is a night club on the weekends!!
