The Chicago Firehouse Expands Brunch Service to Saturdays

Chef Kendal Duque’s Brunch Menu Now Offered All Weekend

Weekend Brunch, served Saturdays (starting 7/16) and Sundays
10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After successfully launching a new Sunday brunch menu in May, The Chicago Firehouse will now add brunch service on Saturdays, beginning on July 16. Chef Kendal Duque’s brunch menu, outlined below, will be offered every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Chef Duque’s menu includes egg dishes, such as eggs benedict (classic, crab cakes, pork belly or spinach-portabello), omelettes and egg scrambles with choice of ingredients. Sweet selections are French Toast with berries and marscarpone cream and Buttermilk Pancakes. French Onion soup and Chicago Firehouse Lobster Bisque are the perfect starting course to the lunch entrees, such as Duque’s “garden” offerings (three seasonal salads and a Caesar with optional chicken breast, shrimp or sirloin steak) and sandwiches (smoked salmon club, blackened tilapia, toasted ham and gruyere with fried egg, Chicago Firehouse Burger and grilled rib-eye on focaccia). The brunch “butcher” section of the menu includes a NY strip steak and beef short rib hash. “Extras” such as applewood smoked bacon, grilled ham and pork link sausages are also available. The complete brunch menu is listed below.

Whether dining indoors in the former-firehouse building or in the beautiful backyard garden, brunch calls for a mid-day cocktail. The libations include classic offerings, such as bloody marys, mimosas and bellinis, in addition to sangria, spiked sweet tea, blood orange mojitos, hard Arnold Palmer and a 5-Alarm coffee cocktail.

A children’s menu is also available. Reservations are welcomed, but not required. Please call The Chicago Firehouse or visit OpenTable.
