Review: 5 Buck Brunch at Juicy Wine Co.*

Juicy Wine Company, the wine bar/retail store that brought Chicago the butter and salt flight (Tournevent goat-milk butter topped with red Hawaiian sea salt, Vermont Butter and Cheese Company’s cultured butter with Black Cyprus sea salt and a Parmagiano-Reggiano butter from Emilia-Romagna topped with truffle salt), now offers Saturday and Sunday brunch.

During the work week, Juicy carries an appealing assortment of cheese, cured meats, and other delights served in tasting portions. The wine list suits wine geeks and novices alike; $15 is added to the price of any bottle in order to experience your purchase on-premise.

Brunch items like Harold’s Chicken & Waffles – two pieces of Harold’s Fried Chicken lounging on a big, crispy, fluffy, home-made waffle and The Hippie Breakfast – fresh fruit, organic yogurt and super-crunchy, home-made granola, and scrumptious sweets from award-winning chef, Mindy Segal (of Hot Chocolate) are recommended.

Since all entrees and drinks are only $5, why not order a few Bellinis or Bloody Marys (served with refreshing beer backs) to wash everything down?

Take note, foodies on a budget: Juicy Wine Company is tiny, and the word has spread about this bargain brunch. Arrive early (doors open at 11 am) to avoid the lines.

On a personal note, thanks to everyone who joined my husband-to-be and me for brunch. Its a blessing to have such lovely friends and family to celebrate with!
