Suds & Sausage On The Way To Wicker Park
Looks like Matt Eisler's next venture is opening in two weeks, according to Eater Chicago, who filed a report Wednesday on Bangers & Lace.
They got a sneak peek of his Wicker Park project, which is situated in the old Mas space and not too far from his other night spots, Bar DeVille and Empire Liquors. Here are some of the highlights we have to look forward to:
**A 20-foot mahogany communal table for the front room, accented by Shaker-style "salt" chairs from Design Within Reach.
**The back room re-creates a comfortable living room with leather couches, wooden tables and a wood-burning stove in the corner.
**Six kegs of rotating featured theme beers (the opening kegs will focus on barrel-themed beers like New Holland's Dragon's Milk, Allagash Curieux and Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout).
**Fried pickles, honey and country ham; Louisiana hot links wrapped in pastry with shark brand hot sauce and sour cream.
**Sheboygan veal brat, melted gouda, sauerkraut, black currants and beer mustard; smoked chicken sausage, crushed chips, pimenton, sweet relish and deviled egg.
