Fireside's free brunch muffins

<b>Muffin to it</b><br>
You’ll hardly notice as <a href="http://metromix.chicagotribune.com/search/27949,0,2522776.venue" target="_blank"><b>Fireside’s</b></a> waitress plops the basket in front of you.  “Muffins,” you’ll say. “Cute.” You’ll return to your brunch chatter, absent-mindedly beginning to nibble. And then chomp. Then devour. Before she returns with your Bloody Mary, you’ll have stopped all conversation to look for her. “More muffins,” you’ll demand. “Now!”  These free brunch starters, made fresh every Sunday, come in two or three rotating flavors. The blueberry are the best, brought in fresh from an organic farm run by a longtime customer; but other house-made varieties have included butterscotch with lemon, chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, mango and Dreamsicle. Owner Rich Wohn says they’ll serve about 600 of them every Sunday. Stop by and see why.  Brunch:  10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. <b>Fireside Restaurant, 5739 N. Ravenswood Ave. 773-561-7433.</b>    <i>—Chris LaMorte, metromix dining producer</i>
