A tale of two brunches: Two of Chicago's finest brunches

A tale of two brunches: Two of Chicago's finest brunches Jul 5th, 2010 at 5:00PM: Here in Chicago we take our brunches seriously -- perhaps because our winter nights are long and we need something to shake the cobwebs of sleep from our weekends, or perhaps because we just need a good hangover cure. From Lincoln Park to Bucktown to Pilsen each neighborhood has its favorite haunt, Midwest sized stacks of French toast heaped on top of hashbrowns and bacon in a mountain of...

Boston's brunch and books

Boston's brunch and books Mar 26th, 2010 at 8:00AM: Though I've sworn off books in favor of my Kindle, there's still something electrifying about an indy bookstore. Throw food into the mix, of course, and the experience can be blissful. On my recent trip to Boston, I sought out Trident Booksellers & Cafe for this reason. The Newbury Street establishment is home to a rare bookstore-and-restaurant combination, Trident, where you can peruse the...

Daily Pampering: The quintessential Upper West Side brunch

Daily Pampering: The quintessential Upper West Side brunch Mar 10th, 2010 at 4:00PM: I try to get to Compass by 11:30, when the restaurant opens. Brunch on the Upper West Side can get crowded quickly, and I enjoy that brief moment when the meal is its most peaceful. This Manhattan neighborhood is popular among brunchers and offers no shortage of choices. Yet, the most interesting by far can be found at Compass, on W. 70th Street, just west of Amsterdam Avenue. Be sure to make a...

Big up Kingston - Sunday brunch with a view

Big up Kingston - Sunday brunch with a view Jun 25th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Sunday brunch is an institution in Jamaica. After church services (around 65% of Jamaicans are Christian) it's perhaps the second most popular Sunday ritual.

Lively-est brunch in Manhattan

Lively-est brunch in Manhattan Feb 8th, 2009 at 12:00PM: In New York, brunch is more than just a meal. For most, it's that one chance to indulge, regardless of tax bracket. You find an upscale restaurant, sip a champagne cocktail and order dishes you could never prepare on your own. Most important, you work hard to seem nonchalant, as if you live this way every day. Of course, if you're visiting the city, you also want at least one celebrity sighting....

Photo of the Day (1/6/07) Jan 6th, 2007 at 12:14PM: If I'm not mistaken I've posted some of Moody75's delicious dining pictures in the past. Perhaps we share a common interest in photographing our plates and maybe I am just a little bit hungry when selecting them, but they really do give you a sense of place. Something like this could surely be found in a French restaurant in NY someone, but Moody75 was lucky enough to nosh and photograph the...
