Wild Eggs

Affection and desire can come in many forms, but the way I feel about the new Wild Eggs restaurant in Wash Park can only be described as obsessive love.  I LOVE the variety of dishes they have to offer.  I LOVE the inventive take on old, traditional recipes.  I LOVE the half priced Bloody Maries and Mimosas served on weekdays.  I just downright LOVE this place.  So much so, in fact, that I went there for breakfast twice in one weekend.
