Don't joke about YOLK when in Chicago for Brunch (3-15-13)

We were taken to a fabulous breakfast/lunch/brunch on Friday by one of
our Chicago theater friends and it was a truly fun and rewarding
experience. YOLK has several locations ( and we were
in Streeterville just east of Michigan Ave at 355 E. Ohio St. It's a
large location but upon arrival at 10:45am Friday it was jammed. We
waited only 10 minutes or less for a table, though. Samuel went for
Pancakes with Fruit on the Kid's menu, which was still an adult
portion. The adult portions were even more adult.
CARNITA EGG SANDWICH was called "pulled pork" but it was really cubed
and served with a yummy Pineapple-Mango Salsa, melted Goat Cheese and
a Fried Egg that oozed all over the yummy Pretzel Bread Roll.
CROWUE MADAME here has grilled Ham and Turkey between two slices of
their Challa French Toast with Melted Swiss Cheese and Dijon Mustard
topped with a Sunnyside Up Egg! Everything comes with potatoes or
fresh fruit. The eggs, bacon, turkey sausage and other dishes were
also huge and satisfying.
Yolk had been recommended to us by the team at our hotel, The Trump
International, and they hit it right on the nail with this choice.
