During the warmer months, Sofia features a European-inspired courtyard patio with greenery and fairy lights. The interior space is also like no place else, as its filled with one-of-a-kind artwork from Taglialatella Gallery next door. Frequently curated and refreshed, you never know if you’ll sit down next to a Banksy, Mr. Brainwash or even an original Andy Warhol.

“Meatless and Wheatless” is the motto at Kupfurt & Kim, where they serve a creative menu of entirely vegan and gluten-free items. This is a great restaurant if you’re looking for healthy options while you’re on-the-move. In the summer you can enjoy their patio, which runs alongside the Village of Yorkville Park.

For a fancy morning out, we recommend the set menu at Cafe Boulud. Set inside the Four Seasons Hotel, Cafe Boulud features a “seasonally changing menu rooted in French tradition.” Chef Daniel Boulud creates menus based off of his time in Lyon, mixing classic and contemporary dishes.

From late spring through fall, Cafe Boulud features a cozy outdoor patio with couches and fire pits. Brunch is served from 11:30 to 2:30 pm.

Of course, the other essentials are there as well, in for the form of mimosas with fresh-squeezed juice, French 75’s, or a classic Canadian choice: a Bloody Caesar.
