Best of the City 2010: our picks for the top brunches in uptown, midtown and downtown

Best of the City 2010: our picks for the top brunches in uptown, midtown and downtown

Huevos Ahogados
Frida
999 Eglinton Ave. W., 416-787-2221

Jose Hadad, the chef at this Forest Hill restaurant, offers an authentic Mexican breakfast. Our favourite: fluffy scrambled eggs bathed in glittering, tart salsa verde with a dollop of rich house-made sour cream. On the side, cotija cheese, beans and tortilla. $13.


Chicken and waffles
The Stockyards
699 St. Clair Ave. W., 416-658-9666

One of the city’s best spots for everything smoked, fried and barbecued recently unveiled a brunch menu that includes an excellent rendition of this southern classic. Three pieces of chicken are softened by a buttermilk marinade and slow-fried to a delectable crunch, the waffles are light, and a house-made chili-molasses glaze lends a spicy kick. $10.


Duck eggs benedict
Cowbell
1564 Queen St. W., 416-849-1095

Chef Mark Cutrara’s dogmatic dedication to the handmade and local sends this dish to the moon. Fresh-baked English muffins arrive topped with soft-poached Ontario duck eggs, a layer of silken smoked Arctic char and a rich hollandaise. $12. (The beermosa—Muskoka Hefe Weissbier and fresh-squeezed OJ—is a great quencher.)
