Editorial Review of Stanley's Kitchen & Tap

Oh, this one's a doozy. We can go on and on about the Southern brunch buffet, with its homemade waffles, made-to-order omelets, juicy fried chicken, hash browns (bring on the hot sauce), super cheesy mac and cheese, sausage, scrambled eggs and a table full of sweets.

But, why not talk about what really draws the crowds back: the wildly popular make-your-own bloody Mary bar. This Lincoln Park heavy-hitter really knows how to bring back the crowds via hearty comfort food and a set-up that gives folks the upper hand in pouring their own vodka-laced tomato drink. (With that freehanded vodka pour, we know you're thinkin' you've really pulled one over on the bartender, but really, they could care less how much you drink.)

The biggest issue here (save for the parking) is the lack of eating space on the tall bar tables due to the plethora of bloodies in various states of disarray. Think about it: When the tiny tables fill up with those crucial Sunday brunch must-haves, there really is nowhere to put the platters of down-home grub. Somehow, most of the cute Lincoln Park look-alikes find a way, though, but we suggest you come a little early to this one, as these 'hoodies love their breakfast beverages.

Average cost: $10-$20
