It's raining bloody marys in the Gold Coast, thanks to two new weekend brunches. Bistronomic (840 N. Wabash Ave. 312-944-8400), a polished little French bistro just off the Viagra Triangle, kicked off 2012 with the debut of its weekend brunch menu.

We spent a weekend gorging in the Gold Coast to size both of them up. CROWD SURFING Bistronomic: Chatty duos of girlfriends, a few gray hairs and...

"This neighborhood is pretty rich in brunch tradition," chef Patrick Sheerin said. The man speaks the truth: Trenchermen, the 4-month-old restaurant he runs with co-chef and brother Michael in Wicker Park, is just blocks from brunch faves such as The Bongo Room, Toast and Milk & Honey. "We wanted brunch to be a twist on familiar items and maybe be a little more on the savory side. " Mission accomplished. After only a few weeks of brunch service, Trenchermen already is standing out with dishes such as pig skin pad Thai.

On July 8, chef Gilbert Langlois closed the doors of his North Center restaurant, Chalkboard, after six and a half years.  “I didn't know if I wanted to do it anymore,” Langlois said. When his seven-year-old son grew bored of sitting in the kitchen with him, he decided that his habit of working 16-hour days was going to need to come to an end. “I wanted a change of lifestyle and to make life a little easier for us,” Langlois said. And so, Langlois has reopened the restaurant as Homegrown Cafe (4343 N. Lincoln...

Within the first three minutes of our conversation, Marlon Wayans mocks my shoes, imagines an ethnically diverse array of naked women surrounding him, describes the peaceful way to strangle a cow and his plan to delay sitting on the toilet in order to fully savor his breakfast. I'd prefer not to spoil anything else about my fireside interview at the Waldorf Astoria hotel with the 40-year-old star and writer of the horror film parody “A Haunted House,” which opens Friday. OK, fine: We also talked about impregnating...
