It’s a butcher. It’s a bar. It’s a deli. It’s an event space. And now, Wicker Park’s eclectic meatery the Chop Shop is also a brunch spot.
So the next time you’re craving the kind of fuel that keeps you afloat until at least 1 p.m., make your way to the intersection of Damen/Milwaukee/North avenues for a brunch menu that highlights the spot’s meaty roots--think banger-stuffed portobello mushrooms or a toasted bagel topped with smoked salmon pastrami.
Or skip the crowds and try this recipe for the Chop Shop’s rich, crumbly, bacon-cheddar biscuits at home. They’re a cinch to make and guaranteed to please the grumpiest of morning people. Mimosas not included.
