Tasty Tuesday: Kanela

If you live in Chicago you know Kanela (which means cinnamon in Greek) for their famous brunch in Lakeview. What you might not know is they're now open for dinner Thursday-Saturday from 6PM-11PM each week.

My mom and sister were in town over the weekend so we decided to give Kanela a try for dinner. We ordered the salmon with cauliflower in a curry vinaigrette, mushroom risotto with truffle oil, and the cheese plate with candied walnuts, berry jam and honey. We absolutely loved the fresh ingredients used in all the dishes, and we couldn't stop talking about how amazing the homemade berry jam was.

If you love Kanela for their brunch you must check out their dinner menu. You won't be disappointed.




  1. Such yummy food! I had such a great time with you last weekend and cannot wait for up north!

  2. This looks awesome - I actually have not tried their brunch OR their dinner, but will now be adding this to my list! :) -Laura

  3. This is the third restaurant that I've found in blogville today. Thank you tempting me and giving me even more reason to indulge (and then run to work it off)!
