Eat Brunch, See Picasso


Have you ever been intrigued by something you don’t totally understand? That’s my issue right now with Time Out Chicago’s Dining & Libation Society and their Brunch on Exhibit. It’s basically the new brunch menu at Chef/Partner Tony Mantuano’s Terzo Piano restaurant (159 East Monroe St.) being unveiled and somehow it’s in conjunction with The Art Institute of Chicago’s Picasso Exhibit. I know fine dining and cultural destinations go hand in hand, but this takes the cake.

I don’t know how or why this collaboration happened, but I shouldn’t ask questions because I really don’t care. It’s one of the best restaurants and one of the best museums in the city, so I will just be happy it’s happening. I guess I should stop teasing and actually say what I’m making all this fuss over. On Sunday, April 7, 2013 you can be one of the first to experience the new brunch menu at Terzo Piano. The new menu showcases fresh ingredients at their seasonal peak sourced from the best local farmers. With your ticket purchase you will get unlimited mimosas, bloody marys and micheladas. The kicker is the free pass to view the “Picasso and Chicago” exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago (111 South Michigan). There are three options for the brunch preview, there will be a 10AM, 12PM and 2PM seating. You can plan a nice afternoon out thanks to this pairing of culture and dining. Tickets are $50 per person, for more information or to purchase to tickets, click here.
