BEST BRUNCH AS LUNCH Wicker Park's Pub Royale, the Anglo-Indian gastropub, wins the award for least- clichéd brunch in relying, as it does, on savory recipes from the subcontinent even during weekend brunch. Order potato samosas, a chicken tikka roll, or India hot chicken, or concede to breakfast with samosas and eggs or chai-spiced French toast. The chai dulce de leche doughnut is so good it remains on the dinner menu. 2049 W. Division St., 773-661-6874; SUNDAY, BLOODY SUNDAY For a hair-of-the-dog roost, try the riverside River Roast, concocting the "beermosa" made with OJ and white ale and the house Bloody Mary that comes with a skewer of the day—a changing selection of meats, cheeses and veggies—and a snit of Miller High Life on the side. Make rabbit and waffles and live blues music your excuses to wash one down. 315 N. LaSalle St., 312-822-0100; riverroast THE PERFECT EGG Lots of places boast about their eggs, but few dare to serve them as precisely as The Dearborn, which offers a 62-degree egg—the temperature at which both the yolk and the white are the same consistency— poised to gush onto duck confit and jalapeno-ched- dar grits. Eggs show up again paired with fried chicken, though we don't know which came first. 145 N.
