Longman & Eagle, Chicago
The offerings at Chicago’s Longman & Eagle revitalize traditional menu items, sometimes reinterpreting them with unexpected ingredients and revealing new qualities within. That aesthetic applies to everything from cocktail mainstays to brunch favorites; their approach to dessert is no different, turning doughnuts and milkshakes into high art.
Recommended dessert: Kentucky Corpse Reviver Twinkie. It’s a high-end reinterpretation of the Twinkie, made with bourbon; that’s probably description enough.
