Foursquare Tips

  • Early morning highlights include the pork belly sandwich and foie gras-filled pop tarts, while the lunch lineup is stacked with items such as the grilled salmon salad and Cuban sandwich.
  • Try the belly sandwich, topped with an oozy egg and mellow pickled onions, and it clicks. Its thicker and juicier than other breakfast meats, and better suited to a home in a secret-recipe biscuit.
  • We found that it's better to play it safe at this collaboration between Trotter alums, with dishes such as honey-lemon doughnuts, big bowls of Israeli couscous and a soufflelike slice of quiche.
  • Try the quiche from our 100 Best list: Closer in texture to a souffland thats a marvelous thing.
  • The vegetable combos of the market quiche (mushrooms and leeks, on my visit) in these majestic slices change often; the fluffy, airy structure is the same every time.
  • Great Place. Not your typical food style, this place is all local and try the corn beef hash.
  • Start your day with some biscuits and lamb sausage gravy. Bacon-studded maple doughnuts are also available...
  • If you're looking for the hippest brunch this side of Wicker Park, you've found the place. Order the Benedict, which comes with two distinctly-flavored Hollandaise sauces.
  • Here, all parts of the "Mexican Holiday"cocoa tequila, espresso liqueur, cinnamon and Cholulabalance perfectly, with the coffee adding depth, not bitterness.
  • The name has something to do with Aphrodite and a chariot. OK. We just want to try the foie gras and cherry Pop-Tarts.
  • Try the Maple Bacon Donut!
  • To add extra dimension and flavor to the brined-in-house corned beef, chef Greg Ellis and crew griddle the thinly sliced meat just to the point of a nice perimeter char.
  • Try the shrimp and grits. Absolutely delicious! The Norseman is great but very, VERY spicy. Bonus: comes with a strip of housemade jerky!
  • Portions were perfect for steak and eggs and quiche and actually a little large for pancakes and bangers and mash. Great stuff!! As others have said, get the maple bacon doughnuts!
