The United Business Association of Midway welcomed Clearing’s newest restaurant,

The Cracked Egg, as a member of the organization when the board met there

over brunch on Aug. 23.

Among other things, the board discussed possible guest speakers at upcoming meetings,

as well as ongoing local issues such as the redevelopment of the 30-acre LeClaire Courts

property on Cicero Avenue, which will include a mix of residences and businesses, as well

as an elementary school. The Cracked Egg, co-owned by Enrique Garcia of Bridgeview

and Juan Macias of Garfield Ridge, opened on Aug. 14 at 7050 W. 63rd St. Those who

remember the location as the old Dallas restaurant will findthat the new owners completely

updated the interior, from the floors to the new high ceilings, with plants

suspended high above the tables. Garcia noted that all stainless-steel counters and other

equipment in the kitchen area were all fabricated in Macias’ metalworking shop.
 “I’ve worked in restaurants my whole life,” said Garcia, whose first eatery was in the

Gurnee Mills shopping mall. He also owns the Mariscos La Palma restaurant at

6038 S. Pulaski Road, which he runs with his brother, Juan.

“We have the Mexican restaurant, but I saw the need for a good breakfast restaurant

in this area,” said Garcia, explaining why he decided to open The Cracked Egg, which he

and his partner have been working on since January. “I always like to start my day with a

good breakfast but you have to go to the suburbs to find somewhere like this.”
The restaurant, which is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, has a large menu featuring

breakfast and lunch choices, including all sorts of egg dishes and everything from

avocado toast to wraps.
“I am usually here most days, and then I go to the other restaurant in the evenings,”

said Garcia. Other family members also work there.
