Nothing beats a beautiful Sunday morning overlooking Lake Michigan and enjoying brunch. We love going - a relaxing experience. If you have kids with you, make sure to tell them you don't need it to be so leisurely.

LPB is always great. The escargot is Devine and the rib eye always perfect. The mussels and fries are wonderful. Service is always good. Great wine list.

Description
Serving authentic, rustic French cuisine in a bustling bistro setting, the restaurant features a menu that ranges from traditional to more modern and a chef's menu that changes with the seasons. The view of Lake Michigan from the two lake rooms in the Bistro is unrivaled by any other restaurant in the city. Plenty of free parking and a gorgeous park setting make Lake Park Bistro an appealing choice for any dining occasion. Lunch is served Monday through Friday, with guests able to choose from an a la carte menu or from the Menu d'Affaire, which offers a 2-course lunch for $19 and a 3-course lunch for $22. Sunday brunch is among the best in the Midwest, featuring three courses with champagne or a mimosa. Dinner is served nightly, and special events like wine dinners and the annual Black Truffle Dinner are highlights for guests and staff alike.
