Seafood Salad

The Summer Seafood Salad at EATT

Last week I had lunch with Chicago City Clerk Susana Mendoza ( One of Clerk Mendoza’s goals when she took office in May of this year was to modernize the way the City Clerk’s office does its business. To do that, her office ran a contest to win lunch with the clerk when Chicago residents to purchase their city stickers online. For those of you not familiar with parking in Chicago, residents must purchase & display a City Sticker on their car to avoid paying a fine… yet another reason to rely on public transit when moving to (or visiting) Chicago! Well I was selected as one of the winners of this contest, how exciting is that?!
Clerk Mendoza, the other winners & I ate at EATT restaurant for lunch ( EATT is just one block from the hotel at 6 W Hubbard (take a right of the hotel, right onto state st, EATT is on your right). It is one part of Rosebud, the famous restaurant group of Chicago. EATT is a great place to stop in for either lunch or dinner. It has a classic American menu. The chef had a special salad dujour with seafood & sesame crackers. It was quite refreshing for a summer day. In fact, EATT is one the many places to enjoy outdoor dining spring through autumn.

The menu at EATT is varied from an omelet with fries to an “Old School” Porterhouse. Since it is a Rosebud restaurant, they of course have the classic “R-Burger,” the 10oz burger on a pretzel roll. You get all this as well as a full bar. Eatt is at the corner of State & Hubbard just one block from the hotel. Once on Hubbard, you will see the variety of bars & restaurants that are so close… You can spend the rest of your time in Chicago trying them all: Mother Hubbard’s (, Theory (, Vermillion (, Rockit (, Howl at the Moon (, O’Callaghan’s (, Dos Diablos ( & Sullivan’s ( are all on the 1 block stretch of Hubbard. You can make an entire weekend of patronizing all the bars & restaurants on the entire block!

About Michael Flynn

I began my hospitality career in Nashville, TN just over eight years ago. Originally from Baltimore, I had moved down to Nashville to pursue my dream of being a country music superstar. It was there that I found my true talent in being a hospitality rockstar. I am an avid sports fan, and my favorite teams are the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Capitals, however I do find myself cheering for the Bears each Sunday during football season, largely due to the great amount of respect and admiration I have for Jay Cutler. While hospitality is my true passion I do have other interests including crocheting, cycling, and elongated penny collecting. I enjoy spending time with my tea-cup poodle “Cutsy” and hanging out at the 31st Street Harbor. If you see me running around the hotel make sure to say hi!
