A Girl & Her Food: Sunday Brunch at Carriage House in Wicker Park


Sunday Brunch at Carriage House in Wicker Park

Where do I begin about my love with Carriage House in Wicker Park? It's my neighborhood joint and I adore how the staff, chefs, and decor exude low-country Southern Charm. You know when Esquire Magazine names CH as one the best new restaurants in Chicago, this place must be really special. Time Out Chicago also awarded Carriage House as the Best Neighborhood Joint.  I was lucky to vote and be at those awards last year and celebrate with CH.

You must start your brunch with a french press and a Bloody Mary with a High Life pony. Sunday Bloody Sunday or Sunday Funday, right? 

During my most recent visit, we met friends, Michael and Jahaila, with their daughter Zoe, as Carriage House is kid and stroller-friendly. We started with an order of apple cider donuts as an appetizer, served with spiced sugar and mulled wine caramel, along side a super tasty warm press coffee. They are finger licking good!

Jahaila and Micheal ordered my favorite item on the menu and the BEST shrimp n' grits EVER.  The shrimp is a such a star dish that it is a staple on both the brunch and dinner.

Steve, my husband, and I split the garlic bologna sandwich. Ohhh Myyyy Goddd. It was served on a brioche bun, pimento cheese, bread and butter pickles, mustard aioli, fried egg. You may want to make get a checkup with your cardiologist after this one (wink, wink)! 

Other items I have ordered (and devoured) in the past are the chicken & biscuit, short rib, beignets and fried green tomatoes.  Head over to Carriage House for brunch and you can thank me later.
