CHICAGO, IL, October 18, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Angelo’s Wine Bar (3026 W. Montrose Ave, Chicago, IL 60618; 773-539-0111) is changing with the season, delivering a brunch menu full of seasonally inspired items. Backed by Executive Chef Julia Helton, the menu’s perfect comfort food combinations highlight the season’s best flavors.
In addition to crowd favorites that remain on the menu, egg-citing new options include
Angelo’s Omelette ($10) with three eggs, sopressata, tomato confit, basil and mozzarella cheese; Luis Luis ($9) made with chorizo sausage, egg, chihuahua, salsa and avocado; and The Standard ($9), a cravings satisfying sandwich featuring sausage, egg, American cheese, Frank’s hot sauce and Maple Syrup on brioche bread. Additionally, the Bacon is Everything ($9) has everything hungry diners look for. Piled high with bacon, egg, American cheese, arugula and bacon jam, this brioche bread sandwich is a bite of heaven.
The three new shared plates make perfect group appetizers and individual meals. Cheese lovers will savor the Italian Queso Fundido made with Swiss cheese, sausage and tomato confit and served with ciabatta bread. For those wanting to start the day on a sweet note, try the Fruit Plate featuring seasonal fruit, whipped cream and mint or the Strawberry Short Cake–with whipped cream and strawberries stacked on top of a biscuit, this dish is sure to please.
Brunchers who favor lunch have a wide selection of salads, sandwiches, pastas and pizzas to choose from. The always popular Fig & Prosciutto ($15) with garlic confit oil, chevre, prosciutto, fig, mozzarella, arugula, parmesan and balsamic continues to reign as a crowd favorite. Ready to join the list of menu favorites is the new Smoked Salmon Pizza ($16). Unlike most restaurants who settle for lox platters, this pizza–with sweet pea creme fraiche, red onion, arugula and capers–takes the brunch staple to a whole different level.
For those seeking brunch with a buzz, Angelo’s new cocktails fit the bill. Angelo’s signature Hickory Old Fashioned is sweet and smoky thanks to its being aged in both Hickory and Cherrywood barrels. Other options include celery and beet inflused cocktails. Non-alcoholic elixers include Italian Roast Coffee ($3), single or double shot Espresso ($3/5), Smeraldina Still/Sparkling ($4), Bottles Root Beer ($4) and a rotating selection of seasonal fresh squeezed juices ($3). Current offerings are strawberry lemonade, orange and grapefruit juices.
Brunch is served 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday. In addition to the new seasonal dishes, the restaurant just launched a new All You Can Drink Mimosa or Bloody Mary bottomless brunch for $25, making Angelo’s Wine Bar the perfect place to unwind from the night before or wind up for the next night out all weekend long. To make a reservation, call 773-539-0111 or visit Angelo’s website. Note: the All You Can Drink Mimosa or Bloody Mary bar has a 2-hour drink limit and cannot be shared or split.
About Angelo’s Wine Bar
A long-time neighborhood staple, Angelo’s Wine Bar (3026 W. Montrose Ave, Chicago, IL 60618; 773-539-0111) was originally a simple Italian pizzeria founded by Jimmy Angelo in the 1960s. The business was sold to Manny Fakhoury in 1983 who turned it over to his brother in 1999 before his nephew, Ramez Fakhoury started helping in 2004. In 2015, Fakhoury completely reconfigured the take-out restaurant by purchasing the adjacent storefront to expand Angelo’s and transforming the space into a sophisticated sit-down restaurant. The restaurant’s facelift extended to its menu as well. In addition to its famous pizzas, the menu features Neapolitan style pasta, brunch, elegant shared plates, a robust wine selection, house-made vermouth and elegant cocktails.
Daily Specials include half-off wine glasses on Mondays; $7 hand crafted cocktails and $5 draft beers on Tuesdays; live jazz music and half off wine bottles on Wednesdays; and BOGO salads or pastas on Thursdays.
In June 2017, Fakhoury added a spacious, stylish new outdoor patio, the first on the West Montrose side of the Chicago River’s north branch.
