There is a movement afoot in the coffee shop/work commune/free web access space to get people to pay up. It is understandable. Why should owners allow the mobile work force to "occupy" for hours, all for the cost of a cup of Joe? Cupitol, the buzzie, Evanston/Northwestern University hangout has come up with the solution. Great food!! If you are all about delicious and simple, this dish is representative. Buttery eggs, tart jam and whipped butter to accompany that toast, and – gravlax! Home-made, cured perfectly, subtle flavor and great consistency. It's not lox and it's not a hunk of salmon. It IS the perfect, healthy accompaniment to a plate of eggs and an energizing spot to work. You'll pay ten bucks for it. And that's fair. Everyone wins.
