Breakfast at Jam | Logan Square - Chicago

Melanie Wong | Oct 25, 201607:09 PM    

This morning was my chance to check out Jam for breakfast.

Though this was a gray morning, the glassed in dining room managed to sparkle.

A macchiato, $4, made with Red Line beans was muddy and stale tasting.

This might be the first time my place setting for breakfast has included a Laguiole knife.

There were only two other customers in the house at 9:30am. So I figured this was my order up.

Waffle of the day was a sourdough-leavened fluffy waffle topped with braised lamb neck, arugula, pickled shallots and winter pear. A soft-boiled egg nestled on top looked like I would need to shell it. But this turned out to be pickled to match the exact hue of Rhode Island Red brown shelled eggs. A little red wine gastric completed the plate. A beautifully conceived dish with acidic highlights, natural sweetness from the fruit, and a touch of vegetal bitter from the arugula. I loved everything about it. Definitely the best $15 I've spent this trip.
