Best Cure for the Average Brunch | Eat Out Awards 2011


Sunday noodles at Takashi

Endless waits, notoriously absentminded service, the same tired eggs Benedict at every restaurant: Has there ever been a meal less interested in originality—let alone dignity—than brunch? Thankfully, Takashi Yagihashi, the chef-owner of this namesake Bucktown restaurant, has restored excitement and respectability to the genre with a Sunday-only menu of soul-replenishing bowls laden with ramen, udon and soba noodles in deeply flavorful broths. The restaurant serves the noodles (personal favorite: the Niku-Tamago Toge udon, with thinly sliced rib eye) for Sunday dinner, too, but if you’re wondering who’s hogging the 11:30am reservation slot, we’re guilty as charged. 1952 N Damen Ave (773-772-6170).
