birchwood kitchen.

i referred to my 2015 eating list when trying to come up with a brunch place a couple weeks back ... we ended up at birchwood kitchen in wicker park / bucktown for sunday brunch & to celebrate a birthday! more below.

but first ... about birchwood kitchen : "our approach to dining is simple -- to balance thoughtful dishes with a casual, inviting environment. ... the menu & daily specials echo the season & we partner with local farms & producers on a variety of our menu items." great. that means i'll be back!

birthday brunch! :
happy birthday to you! 
happy birthday to you! 
happy birthday, dear duarte!! 
happy birthday to you!!
hella-delicious-looking birthday pancakes.

anywho. here's what i had ...

avocado citrus sandwich :
avocado w/ citrus fruits, cashew crema, cilantro & jalapeños on toasted multigrain. (no red onions.)
i really love that they have this vegan staple on the menu ... and it was quite tasty! perfect for a late brunch. it got a little messy at the end, but don't all sandwiches? or is that just me?

an hour wait for brunch is usually a sign of a good place ... which birchwood kitchen definitely is. like i said, with an ever-changing seasonal menu, i'll definitely be back.
