Want to check out CJ Jacobson’s tenure at Intro (Belden-Stratford, 2300 N. Lincoln Park West., Lincoln Park, 773-868-0002) but can’t handle the meaty menu?

Toss another one onto the to-brunch list: On April 11, Bohemian House (11 W. Illinois St., River North, 312-955-0439) will add it to their weekend slate.
