Trenchermen Review

When most people think of "adventurous dining," the first thought usually turns to offal. But this new Wicker Park hot spot is full of unusual flavors beyond pork-centric dishes that are bound to be a first for most. Brothers and chef-owners Michael and Pat Sheerin serve up original dishes with white-tablecloth interpretations like organic Scottish salmon with braised red cabbage, pumpernickel dumplings, and candied quinoa, and aged Peking duck with pastrami sausage, rye spaetzle, and parsnip. The dining room is often booked, but seating in the sleek, antique-inspired bar is first come, first served. Grab a stool and a drink, and order the pickle tots with red-onion yogurt and chicken brescola as a dinner primer.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
