I’ve gone to a couple bridal showers having “tea” at a hotel—>the Drake and the Pennisula.  Because I did not host, I do not know how costly it was but I’m sure being at a very nice hotel it was slightly pricey.

If you like sweets, how about Mindy Segal’s Hot Chocolate Dessert bar?  Fondue might be another fun thing to consider.

I’m sure others might have some good suggestions for brunch but many of the downtown hotels have brunch.  Good luck!

Angelina on Broadway in East Lakeview has a really good brunch with champagne, mimosas, etc. It’s right across the street from my old apartment, so it was easy for me to go over whenever, but it does get kind of crowded. It’s right by Wrigley which I hated but would probably be fun for out of towners.

I would go to a BYOB brunch place to make it more affordable.

Orange is my absolute fav (Clark/Belmont is BYOB but Clark/Fullerton is not). They are also opening a new one on Feb 15 at Clark/Huron. I don’t know if it will be BYOB.

Yolk is also one of my fav brunch places – 747 N. Wells and 1120 S. Michigan. I think that is BYOB too.

I’ve never tried to organize any sort of private party at these spots, but might as well call them.

Yum! Now I want brunch.

A few places come to mind.  Ann Sather’s off the Belmont El.  Yummy cinnamon rolls and I believe it’s BYOB.  They do have a backroom area that could be used to keep the party private.  D.O.C. Winebar on Clark in Lincoln Park.  They have a cute backroom plus delicious food & wine.  The Atwood Cafe in Hotel Burnham has an afternoon tea.  It is right downtown on Washington near the orginal Marshall Fields.  Or something different would be bowling at Southport Lanes, 10Pin, etc.

I would stay away from Orange.  Though I’ve never ate at the one on Clark Street d/t insane lines, they also were closed down not too long ago by Mayor Daley’s dumpster taskforce.  Let’s just say they didn’t keep the most sanitary conditions in the kitchen.
