It took us a few days to recover from the food-coma-inducing extravaganza that was Iron Fork, but by Saturday, we were ready for one of our favorite weekend activities: brunch! We had an interesting take on the traditional eggs benedict. Instead of ham and hollandaise, the poached eggs rested on a bed of chunky avocado and chorizo. Be the first to correctly guess where we ate it, and we'll give you some free grub.

UPDATE:Commenter Cindy got it right -- we were at Half & Half (8135 Maryland Avenue, Clayton; 314-725-0719).

Simply study the photo and leave your best guess in the comments. If you're the first correct answer, we'll give you ice cream specials for two to The Fountain on Locust (3037 Locust Street; 314-535-7800).

Rules: To be eligible, you must leave a valid e-mail address (or Twitter handle or Facebook profile URL) in the comment-entry field. One guess per e-mail address. Employees of the restaurant in question and the Riverfront Times are not eligible.
