New Dessert Menu

Collaborating with our friends at Baker’s Tale and Scooters Custard, we’ve launched a new dessert menu yesterday. We’ll be changing it up monthly, but this one features carrot cake, ginger-pumpkin custard ice cream sandwiches, maple pecan pie, and our usual darn good brownies and toll house bars. See the full menu on this site, with some special dessert liquid refreshments.

The November Menu

novemberContinuing on our evolution to a sleeker menu, but lots of dramatic stuff for November. (We’re easily impressed.) Butternut squash soup, Nola gumbo, a cool calamari combo, the Thanksgiving sandwich, shishito peppers (jumping on the train here), Stiglmeier theuringer sausage, smoked shiitake mushrooms, fried shiitake mushroom po boy (kind of a veggie oyster po boy), more fried onions, and pumpkin custard, among other things. (Menu posted on this web site.)

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH, 6PM. WICKER PARK. Every year we give praise to the darkness and turn away our vulgar fear of it. Dark Harvest V takes us into the night with opaque brews, films of horror, and spectral sounds that only the absence of light can inspire.

Comments Off on OCTOBER MENU



As you may have noticed, we are updating (mildly) our menu monthly. New this month is:

  • Hot spiced cider
  • Ruby red trout is the featured fish (fried, blackened, smoked including a yummy smoked trout salad)
  • Revamped house pickled veggie side, now to include banana peppers, so the complete dish is cuke, okra, banana pepper & red onion
  • Two German sausages for Oktoberfest, from the great, local Stiglmeier sausage house – weisswurst and theuringer
  • Antibiotic, hormone, and cage free chicken
  • Korean fried chicken permanently added (named Sandra O)
  • Revamped cheesesteak (renamed Joey V) and the turkey reuben (renamed Cerise R) to make them a little more interesting

As always, we will make you any old sandwich, or any sandwich you can describe for that matter, upon request. Just you, though. Don’t tell anyone else.

Comments Off on BETTER CHICKEN


chickenAs a part of our ongoing quest to move towards healthier ingredients, our chicken is now hormone, antibiotic, and cage free. Not only that, but it tastes better, like how some of us (no names named) remember chicken used to taste.
