Any recommendations for good Sunday brunch in Evanston July 8, preferably buffet, but not limited to that? Details on what food is served/available and price ranges, if you know them, would be appreciated.

    Looking at the date t might be too late - but not sure of any buffets - others might chime in - but some of the best places for breakfast in Evanston -

    Dixie Kitchen & Bait Shop on Church
    The Lucky Platter on Main Street
    Blind Faith on Dempster - this is a strictly vegetarian restaurant and serves a great breakfast

    If you are willing to go a little notth to Wilmette - there is Walker Brothers on Green Bay Rd - a staple for breakfast fort he northshore -

      I can't think of a single place that does a buffet brunch in Evanston. They may do a buffet brunch on Sundays at the Daily Grill in the Doubletree in Skokie.

      Places that do brunch to order, in addition to those mentioned above (beware long lines at Walker Brothers, but it's worth it) include:

      Prairie Moon on Sherman - www.prairiemoonrestaurant.com
      Quince on Hinman - www.quincerestaurant.net
      Wolfgang Puck's Grand Cafe on Maple by the movie theaters
      Davis Street Fishmarket on you-know-what-street - www.davisstreetfishmarket.com
      Bar Louie on Sherman - www.barlouieamerica.com/evanston.html

        nsxtasy - you're back! We've missed you.

        Have you tried the brunch at Quince? I've heard mixed reviews.

          I hope Quince's brunch is better than dinner. Maybe we went on an "off" night, but our meal at Quince was very disappointing--OK conceptually, but really shoddy execution on several dishes. Inexcusable at their price point. I have no desire to go back.

          My favorite place for weekend brunch in Evanston is LuLu's. It's Pan-Asian, all-you-can-eat, but not a buffet (free reign of the menu, with only a couple of exceptions). Not everything is great, but most is good (and some very good) and a steal at $16 or so.

            I agree 100% aboiut Lulu's - a great deal and good food but when I think about brunch I always link it with breakfast food - not much breakfast chow in Lulu;s Munch-Bunch
