First Watch, which made its Chicagoland debut in Oak Brook in March, announced its continued expansion into the region with the opening of a new restaurant in the suburb of Kildeer on June 7. The new 5,605-square-foot standalone restaurant is located at 20505 North Rand Road in the Shops at Kildeer. The brunch spot offers a unique indoor/outdoor dining space and cocktail bar, where it will serve fresh breakfast, brunch and lunch seven days a week.
The brand’s iconic and crave-able items include Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. Customers in Kildeer will be able to enjoy First Watch’s array of fresh juices pressed daily from the freshest fruits and vegetables, as well as the brand’s signature Project Sunrise coffee, a socially responsible and award-winning blend which supports an independent group of female farmers in Huila, Colombia.
“Since opening our doors in Oak Brook a few short months ago, the Chicagoland community has welcomed First Watch with open arms, and we couldn’t be more grateful to be opening just up the road in Kildeer,” says Chris Tomasso, president and CEO of First Watch. “The Windy City has been a place that, as an organization, we have been itching to be a part of for years. The Village of Kildeer is a bit of an oasis near the busy city, and we are so excited to bring our fresh take on brunch to this beautiful area.”
First Watch’s new Kildeer location will encompass various features of the brand’s new restaurant format, which includes a sun-filled, year-round dining room as well as a beautiful outdoor dining space and bar that will allow for al fresco dining during the warmer months of the year, and easily transforms into a second interior dining room when weather conditions may be less than ideal. The restaurant is also designed to accommodate takeout and delivery, both available in the First Watch mobile app, as a result of customers’ changing preferences. First Watch Kildeer will offer a dedicated entrance and cookline to accommodate the growing demand among consumers for off-premises dining options.
In addition to its award-winning core menu items, the brand offers revolving seasonal menus, which, upon the opening of the new Kildeer restaurant, will include an Elote Mexican Street Corn Hash, Barbacoa Breakfast Tacos, Bananas Foster French Toast and a refreshing fresh pressed juice called the Watermelon Wake-Up.
Finally, as a part of First Watch’s rapidly expanding alcohol program, guests can enjoy refreshing cocktails featuring the company’s fresh juices and signature creations such as the Cinnamon Toast Cereal Milk made with coconut rum, cold brew coffee, coconut milk and agave nectar.
