Where & Wear: Dusek's
Known for hosting the 2nd Fridays event every month, Pilsen is where the Chicago art scene resides. If you are tired of the similar scenes in West Loop, Downtown, or River North, you might try the unique vibe of Pilsen. Filled with cute contemporary art galleries, murals and examples of public art in the streets, Pilsen has the perfect scenery for a Saturday stroll.

Dusek's is the perfect address for you to start your day in Pilsen. This hidden gem of the neighborhood is renowned enough to have a Michelin star, but they offer this amazing tasting experience for reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend you to try out their brunch menu and pair your food selection with one of their delicious beermosas. "Crab Cake Benedict" is great for seafood lovers, while "Green Tomato Shakshuka" can be a great choice for vegetarians. If you really want something hearty and juicy, "Juicy Lucy" will satisfy your cravings. "Ricotta and Honey Beignets" is a great starter to share with your friends with its creamy and velvet texture. For the beermosas, IPA (New Belgium Citradelic, luxardo apricot, OJ, lime) and their Brunch Punch were our favorites.
The clothes are from Zara, Urban Outfitters, Massimo Dutti and COS.
Dusek's is a great place for your Saturday brunch plans with the girls or for your group outings so make sure you go there this spring. A loose blouse in pastel colors and light colored pants will be a great outfit to easily blend in this artsy corner of the city.
