Shout out from Eater

Many of you may know about a website called Eater.com....if not we would like to introduce it to you!  The website is a valuable tool for keeping a pulse on the food scene not only in Chicago, but in major cities all around the country.  It can introduce you to new restaurants you may not know about, help you follow your favorite Chef/Mixologist, or locate the best new cocktail bar for happy hour. 

One of my favorite features on the site are the heat maps.  These posts collect the hottest restaurants and bars of the moment and put them on a map.  It can help you venture into a new neighborhood in Chicago or allow you to navigate the culinary scene while you travel around the country!

We are fortunate enough to be featured this week on the website.  Eater typically doesn't cover catering companies, but they took an interest in our coffee window and event space.  We are truly trying to change the way people think about catering by proving that fine dining can be brought to your next catered event.  The article highlighted my background as a Sommelier, however they left out a very important aspect of Brix.  Our food and experience at your event would not be possible without the kitchen team headed by Partner and Chef Joe Gancarz.  With his experience in high volume restaurants and Michelin starred fine dining, there's really nothing we can't accomplish for you!

Come experience the way we put on an event for yourself Friday December 1st at our inaugural Friday Dinner.  Can't wait to see you all there!

Also, it's not too late to order your Thanksgiving Box for next weeks holiday.  With our pre packaged meal, you don't have to worry about a thing!

Less Roasting, More Hosting! Get Your Pre Cooked Thanksgiving Dinner From Brix Catering

If you are fortunate enough to be able to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and family, it is likely that you are already looking forward to the big day. On the other hand, if you are the person who is hosting the gathering, what is supposed to be a nice and relaxing day can turn into an extremely stressful experience. While we know you would rather be sitting on the couch, talking to your guests and putting your feet up, you’re likely to be prepping for days on end beforehand and endlessly cooking on Thanksgiving day. The good news? This doesn’t have to be the case. When you purchase a pre-cooked Thanksgiving dinner from Brix Catering, you can simply take the day to enjoy your company and be grateful for all that you have. Let’s talk a bit more about the benefits of purchasing a premade Thanksgiving dinner for the holiday this year.

The Downside Of Cooking A Thanksgiving Feast

While you may enjoy cooking in general, having to cook an entire feast for a large group of people is an exhausting process. Not only do you have to cook throughout the entire day, but you also have to prepare for making this meal as early as three weeks ahead of your celebration. There’s the entire process of finding the perfect turkey, clearing out your freezer to make space for all of the must-have thanksgiving foods, planning the menu, and of course, defrosting the turkey. And these are all things that happen before Thanksgiving even arrives. By the time you actually sit down to eat with your friends and family, there is no doubt that you may have to work especially hard not to fall asleep in your mashed potatoes. Let’s skip the exhaustion and instead, get a pre-cooked meal.

What’s Included In Your Brix Thanksgiving Meal?

When you purchase the Traditional Thanksgiving  Day Dinner from Brix Catering, you will get the following:

  • Roasted Turkey
    10-12 pound turkey, brined in apple cider, roasted to perfection & carved for easy serving

  • Savory Herb Stuffing
    Made with apples, celery, carrots & sage infused brioche stuffing

  • Homestyle Mashed Potatoes
    Made with russet potatoes whipped with cream & butter

  • Classic Green Bean Casserole

  • Turkey Gravy
    Rich turkey gravy made from Brix original turkey stock

  • Haydon Family Dinner Rolls
    A third generation Brix family recipe of yeast rolls

  • Cranberry Sauce

If you would like to swap out side dishes or add additional Thanksgiving sides, you can also do this. We also offer:

  • Sweet Potatoes layered with butter, brown sugar and marshmallows (optional)

  • Cornbread Stuffing tossed with onions, celery, thyme & apples

  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts tossed with crispy shallots

  • Butternut Squash roasted and tossed with sage and brown butter

  • Roasted Cauliflower pan roasted cauliflower florets, garlic & Old Bay seasoning

  • Wild Rice Pilaf steamed in Brix original vegetable stock, with pecans & cranberries

Domaine Opening Party

After over a year of construction I am proud to announce our new kitchen and event space are complete!  This past weekend we threw a celebration to commemorate this momentous occasion.  Friends and family joined us on Saturday for a Great Gatsby Gala.  You can see from the photos that a good time was had by all!  We would like to thank everyone that made it out to celebrate.  We truly appreciate all of the support!

The kitchen team really enjoyed the opportunity to try out new recipes and presentation styles in our new space.  We decided to spread the party into the kitchen to allow for more space to accommodate our ever expanding guest list.  It was great to see that people flowed through the kitchen so easily, as we would like to offer in-kitchen experiences like cooking classes dining experiences.  

We would like to thank our friends at Tenzing and CH Distillery for providing local spirits and top notch wines to make our celebration special.  You can’t throw a good Gatsby party without the proper libations!  We particularly enjoyed the Methuselah of Gosset Champagne from Tenzing Wine and Spirits.  The 6 Liter bottle not only helped decorate the room, but ensured everyone got to enjoy a glass of bubbly.  A special shout out to the owners of Rolling Meadows Brewery in Springfield Illinois for coming up to show their support.  Your beers are fantastic and we can't wait for them to take over Chicago!

The grand opening party was an evening we will never forget, but most importantly it filled the team with confidence about our new space and kitchen.  We finally got to see the room filled and use all of our new toys including the UNOX double stack ovens that have truly changed the game! 

You can see pricing for the new space on our website www.brixcatering.com. We look forward to showing you and your friends the new space.  Please keep us in mind for your next event or if you have friends that are looking for a space for their next event a referral is always appreciated.  

Cheers to Domaine finally opening its doors!
