Our tolerance for punningly named restaurants is never all that high, but we’re inclined to override our inherent displeasure when it comes to the ingeniously constructed Bakin’ and Eggs, a breakfast/lunch/brunch restaurant coming in early November to 3120 North Lincoln Ave from Gina Howie and Bob Hartwig.
We have a harder time forgiving the fact that the new resto bears a subtitle — properly speaking, it’s “Bakin’ and Eggs: A Lovely Restaurant” — but since it indicates a familial relationship to Howie’s similarly subtitled Lovely: A Bake Shop, we can’t be too cranky. Time Out has details on the menu, including an epically savory caramelized onion, balsamic and blue cheese frittata, a dedicated coffee bar, and a trend-baiting bacon “flight,” with four or five types of cured pork belly served side-by-side. We’d expect nothing less, given the name. [TOC]
