Blog Reviews: Week Of We Know What We Want For Breakfast

• The Renegade craft fair is known more for things to put on your body — think wittily silk-screened t-shirts and hand-sewn handbags &mdsah; than things to put in your body. But Big Bite Catering might have turned that on its ear. [Drive Thru]

• The Decider takes on virtually every one of Chicago’s non-Sonic drive-ins, including MP personal favorites Mic Duck’s Superdawg. [The Decider]

• The ladies of Chicago Bites head to Avec (in company of fellow podcaster Scott from Dinner Voyeur). Tammy thinks it feels like a cafeteria, but the food (especially the meat) knocks them all out of the park. [Chicago Bites]

• Head out to Schaumburg for some Greek food at Greek Village Taverna, where the waiters look like Telly Savalas! [Best Of The Best Dining Chicago]

• The Dolinskter delivers a cubano roundup, including a “way out of whack” rendition at newcomer 90 Miles Cuban Cafe. [CHuffPo]

• Mister Gebert visits Mado, and the restaurant endears itself to him on impact: well-priced, delicious food, with smart flavor composition. They even make liver palatable! [Sky Full of Bacon]

• The Chicago Traveler (did anyone ever notice his logo is reminiscent of Chicagoist’s?) gives a writeup of Lakeview’s Shochu: cocktails made from the namesake liquor don’t disappoint, and there’s satisfying Asian-inflected bar food. [Chicago Traveler]

• Here’s a breakfast after our own hearts: Brie, spinach, and mushroom, in a panini, at Star Lounge Cafe. [Chicagoist]

• Mister Nagrant weighs in on More Cupcakes. Not the idea of having a lot, but the cupcake bakery by that name. [Hungry Mag]

• A present-tense review of Barnaby’s in Des Plaines, where they’re known for pizza but do a mean baby back ribs as well. [NBC5 Street Team]

• ChiBBQKing has so many meat/gyro/pork/ribs reviews up this week that we think you should just click over there and read them yourself. [ChiBBQKing]
