Posted by:  Josannah Birman

The normally bustling Loop seems more like an abandoned town in the wild West on frigid Sunday mornings. Walking down Michigan Avenue is eerily deserted and dormant except for Yolk's bright sign. Inside, the massive blue, yellow, and steel restaurant is packed and pulsating with energy. Booths serve as towering barriers perfect for a city that values personal space. For those who enjoy a side of macabre art with their eggs, there is an excellent view of Agora, Magdalena Abakanowicz’s Grant Park installation featuring 106 headless figures. The service is friendly and efficient but not overbearing. Well-stocked California omelettes are an avocado lover’s dream but the consistency is a little strange. Unless you are fond of chowing on raw potatoes, play it safe and ask for them well-done. Prime rib and eggs get carnivores excited about breakfast again. While the prices are reasonable for the location, some people may not want to drop $25 for two on a morning meal. In Chicago, where finding an extraordinary breakfast is about as easy as finding your soul mate, I'd call Yolk for a second date.
