Whether it's too much food or too much imbibing, these restaurants hit the hungover spot.
I've been a fan of West Egg for years. I stopped in for the first time in probably 2 years and I remembered that I have egg-celent taste.
You'll easily walk right past this joint in Lincoln Park. Stop! Don't! Reverse! They're shrimp tacos are número uno!!!!!!
Meli is the best breakfast option in Chicago. You can get good old fashioned hangover food or organic, all-natural eggs with fat-free olive oil spray. Everybody wins.
I have a list of 7 or so "best bites in Chicago (or beyond)" & Southport's bread pudding pancakes are tip top of the totem pole.
Although it's sorta lost its edge over the past 6 yrs, especially w the blow up of Hubbard St., Rockit has seriously good grub, including banging' burgers and salads.
Although named after Oscar, no literature necessary. Just some solid Irish pub fare, great burgers and an enviable beer list. Wilde the Great would be impressed.
The fact that restaurant owner Franco named his new spot Wood just so that he could refer to brunches as "Morning Wood" was reason enough to bring me in on a recent Sunday morning.
Don't expect clean glassware or even a Korbel split (they told me they only have "brunch champagne," whatever that is), but do expect a lively atmosphere w a nice beer list and surprisingly excellent hummus.
Nothing's better than a big juicy bar. Except the best big juicy burger w crispy onions and truffle fries. Which you will find @ Burger Bar.
Although my burger came out wrong THREE times, when it came out right, it was perfect. Dripping with greasy love and cooked to a remarkable medium rare, the grass fed prime burger on a pretzel bun w grilled onions and melted cheddar sent me to hog heaven. And their Kennebec fries were just ketchup on the wonderfully buttered bun.
$2.50 to $3.50 per taco for some of the best corn tortilla-ed homemade tacos in town (do not miss the pork ones) - ay ai ai!
