We checked and the day after tax day is indeed known to foodies in the US as National Egg Benedict Day. Hard to untangle the origins of this culinary factoid, which is fitting because there’s some disagreement regarding who first came up with the idea of topping a poached egg on a toasted English muffin with lemony hollandaise sauce. Apparently, a stockbroker named Lemuel Benedict has often been credited with inventing the brunch staple as a hangover cure in the year 1894, the same year a recipe for  Eggs á la Benedick  was published by a New York chef. That said, there are reports that the famed NYC restaurant Delmonico’s had been serving a similar dish since the early 1860s. In any case, My Dog Duke’s Diner (1007 Commerce St.) is marking the day by launching a new menu with not one, not two, but five variations on eggs in the benedict style. They’re all on special for $10 from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. Click  here  for more info or call (434) 849-8868.
