Friend-of-the-blog Chris Freeberg is an inveterate bruncher. A few days ago, he informed us of his intentions to conquer Sepia, writing "I am heading over to Sepia brunch soon. I cannot go another Sunday
without the bacon bloody...."
Nor should he! Last night, he sent us his review:
The drink tastes a bit like barbecue sauce.... The short rib hash was delicious, but greasy. The basket of donuts, and especially the short bread cakes with jam, were strong. Observed 1 friend adore her market inspired (sweet crab) eggs Benedict. While, another complained of a bland root vegetable omelet.
No wait, nice service, a bit like slipping into an old smoking jacket.
Lovely. Meanwhile, Time Out Chicago has a photo of Sepia's bacon Bloody Mary, but it's a tiny little thing. In order that you may revel in the true majesty of the drink, we've sussed out a trove of bacon Bloody Mary pics to share with you.

Meanwhile, Google is pretty adamant that the plural of Bloody Mary is Bloody Marys rather than Bloody Maries, by a margin of 180:1. We can't say we approve, but we'll go along with it.
