City Provisions Announces Brunch, We Rejoice

2011_6_22CPLogo.jpg Last week, City Provisions (our favorite charcuterie maker and all-around great local food emporium) announced that they would start serving brunch. CP already makes its own bacon, corned beef, pates and sandwiches, and starting this Sunday, June 26th, City Provisions will be serving an expanded menu from 10-2. The menu, which looks drool-worthy, will include latkes, whiskey-glazed ham, fresh biscuits and donuts, duck fat home fries and house-cured salmon.

There will also be local booze concoctions to supplement the food, but we're (frankly) more excited by the non-alcoholic offerings. Try a "City Provisions Raw Honey Latte" or a Black Cherry Egg Cream. We're not even sure what a "Cleetus' Morning Metal" is, but we'll report back after we try it for ourselves.

If you're not into brunch, City Provisions also announced a new evening "Nosh" menu - a selection of snacks, cheese, chips, beer and wine that will be served in the evening. CP is extending its hours into the night to serve these snacks. We'll hike all the way up north to try their charcuterie platter ($19), a great chance to sample their wares without buying pounds of fancy meat.

City Provisions is located at 1818 West Wilson. Check the website for hours and prices.
