This Friday we will be joining the Junior League of Chicago for a fantastic event based around pairing wine with not only food, but also different vendors from around the Chicago area. Come see Chef Joe and I as we pass out two different appetizers with wine pairings, thanks to our favorite wine purveyor Tenzing Wine and Spirits. We will be serving a salmon ceviche with a fresh summer rose and a duck rillette with a pinot noir. Come join us to help this great charity and enjoy a plethora of perfect pairings!
We are getting closer and closer to moving to our new space in Roscoe Village. One of the features we will be offering in the new location is a service window at the front of the building with coffee and pastries during the week. We have a rotating menu of pastries that we will make from scratch including adult pop-tarts, empanadas, and croissants. To accompany these we have teamed up with our friends at Metric Coffee to create Brix own special blend. On top of that we will be offering their nitro cold brew that we have been enjoying for the past couple of months to keep the team moving! The service window will offer us the opportunity to meet the neighbors and share our favorite coffee with the neighborhood. Additionally, as a dog owner, I am so excited to offer someone the opportunity to walk up, grab a cup of coffee, and not have to leave their four legged friend outside. We are planning to move into the new space May 1st and hopefully have the service window up and running by the end of the month.

This summer we are beyond excited to announce a new partnership with Chef Joe Gancarz. Executive Chef Joe Gancarz began his culinary career out of necessity during college. These humble beginnings in a series of fast casual restaurants were just the start of an already impressive career. Joe left the traditional safe route and pursued culinary school at Chicago’s Kendall College. The many accolades Joe received at school including deans list and being selected as teaching assistant, point to his never fail attitude that have carried him through his culinary career. After school Joe worked in a series of Michelin starred restaurants including a position as Chef de Cuisine responsible for a large portion of the menu that earned the star as well as a 2015 Zagat 30 under 30 Best Young Innovative Chefs. Today Joe has taken the position of Executive Chef and partner at Brix, forming a new partnership with his friend from the first day of culinary school. He is poised to bring the Michelin Star experience to the world of catering and eventually to a series of restaurant projects the new partnership will create.
Additionally we are poised to announce another new team member Sous Chef Ian Mccaffrey. Ian has an impressive resume for someone of his age and his experience has already made our team stronger.
In celebration of our new partnership and to offer you a chance to see first hand how talented our new team is, we are hosting a pop-dinner on September 30th at 7:00 PM. The dinner will be 7 courses with wine pairings for $95. Tickets are available at the link below. We look forward to seeing you there!
