Clarke's in Evanston
Not sure about the tomato soup recipe.
FYI: There are two Clarke's locations in Chicago; On Belmont (avoid this one for the service is terrible)just east of Sheffield.
Clarke's on Lincoln Avenue one block north of Fullerton.
Both are open late.
Also try these breakfast restaurants:
Evanston; Le Peep is very good for a chain. My favorite skillet is the Desparado with the Southwestern green chilies and chorizo sausage, potato's, tomato's, onions, etc.
Wilmette: Walker Brother for pancakes
The Four Season's for brunch/I hear it's pretty amazing.
Wishbone: West Washington or try the northside location on Lincoln and School Street. Great southern and Cajun inspired breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
M.Henry on North Clark Street in Edgewater/northside.
Cafe Selmarie for french inspired breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Located in charming Lincoln Square
Ina's on West Randolph Street. Her pancakes are unbelievable (
She calls them by another name though. These are the very best I've tried...even better than the Original House of Pancakes on Bellview at Rush Street in the Gold Coast).
Tempo Restaurant on State street in the Gold Coast. Also serves tasty Greek Food. Great Greek Ommelette with Feta. Open late night
Nookies Too: Open late night
