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.
