When Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants opened our first restaurant in 14 years, MAD Social, it was our hope that it would quickly become a staple in Chicago’s West Loop.

Under the guidance of Phil’s daughter, Gina, Executive Chef Mariela Bolaños has created a globally inspired menu with a New American twist that offers something for everyone. The reaction from everyone from neighborhood residents to diners from across the city has been amazing.

MAD Social also has received critical acclaim from a wide variety of print and online publications. According to Chicago Redeye, MAD Social “serves drool-worthy food in a downright comfy space,” calling Chef Mariela’s creations “mad genius.”

The restaurant’s latest accolade came from online food blog Chicago Eater, which named MAD Social as one of Chicago’s best brunch spots.  Specifically, the Eater highlighted our short rib benedict, salmon gravlax, and shakshouka.

In addition to a selection of our regular menu items, MAD Social offers the following brunch menu:
