See Food: Chicago Q

By Caitlin Klein in Food on Feb 15, 2012 5:00PM

Barbecue, glorious barbecue. Chef and Partner Lee Ann Whippen rolled out a new brunch menu at Chicago Q, including Eggs Benedict with smoked chicken, brisket hash, and a smoked bacon sausage breakfast sandwich topped with eggs. The new menu also includes two classic brunch drinks, a mimosa ($5) and a bloody Mary ($6). For the less meat-inclined, there is mascarpone-stuffed french toast served up with walnut butter.

Chicago Q won food staffer Molly Durham's pick for Restaurant Week 2012, and we can see why. Enjoy this pictorial feast for your eyeballs and try to quiet the rumbling in your stomach. You might want to close the office door for this one.
