    We all have that favorite morning hangout — the one where we can crawl out of bed, throw on a baseball cap, and proceed to slurp down runny eggs and Bloody Marys, hoping in vain to cure our reckless Saturday night. But, too often, weekend brunch means treading a path of least resistance, whereby we constantly return to the same tried and true standbys, wait too long for a table, and then order the eggs Benedict. Again.

    Happily, as brunch makes the jump from Sunday to Saturday (and is even served daily at some eateries), chefs are increasingly stretching their culinary powers, and embracing adventurous menu items that often don't even contain the words "eggs" or "toast." Ahead, meet 10 Chicago restaurants that are elevating the weekend's most celebrated meal, and shaking up your morning routine in the process.
