    Ovo Frito — according to Google translate, in Spanish it means a "Fried architectural ornament in the shape of an egg." Sounds yummy, right?

    The peripatetic Evanston Lunch Group™ will make its usual independent assessment of the fried architectural elements Wednesday, January 17 at Ovo Frito, a newish brunch spot just a few blocks north of downtown Evanston.

    Concerning Ovo Frito,
    Daily Northwestern wrote:Zinnia Iglesias and her husband Roberto Flores own the cafe, which opened July 6 and is located at 1936 Maple Ave.
    Iglesias said the cafe is an American restaurant with a hint of Latino influence.
    Ovo Frito is the couple’s first restaurant, but both Iglesias and Flores have worked in the restaurant industry for many years. Iglesias said she worked as a general manager for McDonald’s for roughly 14 years, and Flores worked at a breakfast restaurant. She said Flores has always enjoyed cooking, so owning a restaurant seemed like a natural next step.

    All are welcome. Join us!

    So, how was it? (I really wanted to attend but I have not quite fully shaken the cold/flu that's been going around. Next time!)
