Mother’s Day – Brunch and a Family Photo

For the second year in a row, Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile’s Café des Architectes is making Mother’s Day memorable by giving Mom a priceless gift to cherish forever, a family portrait. Sunday, May 14 from 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm, overnight guests of Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile and Mother’s Day Brunch patrons from Café des Architectes can pose for a complimentary professional family photo taken by professional photographer, Cory Dewald.

This year for brunch, Executive Chef Biggers is featuring a prix fixe menu highlighting traditional favorites with a French twist such as English Pea Velouté, Parmesan & Tomato Quiche, Stuffed French Toast, Crab Cake Benedict, and Croissant Bostock. The prix fixe menu will be available exclusively from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm. A kid’s prix fixe menu will also be available for $19.


National Cheese Day

From Friday, June 2 to Thursday, June 8, Café des Architectes and Le Bar at Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile will feature two specialty menu items in honor of National Cheese Day (June 4). Café des Architectes will offer a cheese infused prix fixe dinner menu, featuring dishes that incorporate unique French and Chestnut Provisions fromage. Le Bar’s specialty menu item is a wine and cheese pairing that gives guests a chance to taste rare French and locally aged Chestnut Provisions fromage. Both Le Bar and Café des Architectes will be serving their regular menus alongside these special menus.
