Blog Reviews: Week Of Aldermanic Manhood At Stake

Chicago’s intrepid food bloggers were all over the damn place last week, in alphabetical order by restaurant (what happened to A-L this week?)

• What goes well with Morseland’s famed mojitos? Their equally famed beer-battered macaroni and cheese fritters [Big Sweet Tooth]

• Free coffee while you wait at Over Easy, which uses top-quality ingredients, but seems to do sweet better than savory [Drive-Thru]

• Try some cardamom-flavored Arabic coffee at Petra in the Loop, which you can (unusually for the breed) take to go [Drive-Thru]

• The brisket at Smoque BBQ is juicy, smoky, soft and crisp - no wonder it sells out every day [Chicago Foodies]

• While people seem to like Su Van’s brunch, it’s nothing special during the week [Chicagoist]

• Check out trendy SushiSamba Rio for brunch, when you avoid the scenesters and have the fusion cuisine in large portions all to yourself [Drive-Thru]

• Brunch at Treat unfortunately does not live up to its name, with entrees arriving sadly overcooked [Chicagoist]

• Indian fusion for lunch at Vermilion? Hit and miss, but sure, why not? [Drive-Thru]
