Budget Beat: Nana in Bridgeport

The owners source ingredients for all-organic Nana as carefully as buyers for the most expensive places in town, though their menu is far from uppity.

Breakfast and lunch are two of our favorite meals of the day. So we’re pleased that Omar and Christian Solis have opened Nana in a spiffy Bridgeport storefront, serving both (rolled together into brunch on weekends) every day. The brothers source ingredients for all-organic Nana as carefully as buyers for the most expensive places in town, though their menu is far from uppity. Breakfasts run from gluten-free corn-oat waffles ($8) to brioche French toast stuffed with lemony mascarpone cheese ($10) and a bold spin on eggs Benedict, the Nanadict—thick corn flatbread topped with chorizo, poached eggs, and poblano sauce, with excellent home fries ($10). Feeling lunchy? We loved our chopped salad with applewood-smoked bacon, red onion, tomatoes, dried cherries, and toasted walnuts ($9). Sandwiches such as the Magic Mushroom Burger with roasted garlic aïoli and home fries ($11) and a roasted turkey panino with a side ($8) also hit their marks. Abundant vegetarian options may include chili, no-beef burgers, panini, and most breakfast items. 3267 S. Halsted St.; 312-929-2486.
