Telegraph Serves Brunch for Mother's Day

If you're looking to treat mom to something a little classier than breakfast in bed this Mother's Day, look no further than Telegraph. That's right, everyone's favorite Logan Square wine bar, normally only open evenings, is poised to serve a special Mother's Day brunch on Sunday, May 12 (as if you didn't already know what date Mother's Day fell on).

Telegraph excels at seasonal contemporary American fare thanks to chef John Anderes, and for Mother's Day brunch, the menu will primarily stay true to what they do best at dinner, but wih more eggs. Dishes are served à la carte, with first course selections such as oysters on the half shell ($16 per half dozen, $30 per dozen); smoked trout tartine with roasted green garlic, spring greens, and fried farm egg; Aubergines and housemade mozzarella tartine with tomato sauce, basil, and Parmesan ($8); and baby romaine salad with spring peas, pickled radicchio, walnuts, and sun-dried tomato vinaigrette ($9).

Second course options include roasted striped bass with kumquat marmalade, pink peppercorn, and olio verde herb salad ($14); a ritzy riff on steak 'n' eggs in the form of a French omelette with grilled flat iron steak, Beecher Flagship cheddar, ramps, and béchamel ($13); housemade angel hair pasta (perfect for your angelic mom) with grilled squid, fresh chickpeas, golden raisins, and tomato ($12); and eggs Benedict with Edwards ham, citrus hollandaise, spinach, and housemade biscuits ($12).
