Their upcoming Wicker Park venture, Trenchermen (40 percent bar, 60 percent restaurant—at least according to the seat allocation), is on target for a late March opening in the old Spring space. But brothers and chefs Michael (Blackbird) and Patrick Sheerin (Signature Room at the 95th) aren’t holed up testing recipes under top-secret lockdown until then. By tonight’s end, the Sheerins, along with partners Matt Eisler and Kevin Heisner (the guys behind Bangers & Lace and The Anthem) and beverage director Tona Palomino (WD-50), will have hosted six pop-up dinners—with cocktails pairings, naturally—since Sunday evening at Logan Square Kitchen. The menu features dishes such as aged duck breast with cornbread and yuzu apple sauce; drinks include the Slippery Slope (rye, Cynar, Heering cherry liqueur) and the Para Todo Bien (mezcal, Yellow Chartreuse, pineapple).
Browse our photos from Monday night below. And good news for Valentine’s slackers: Tickets are still available for two of tonight’s seatings, at 5:30 and 9:30 p.m.; $120 gets you a five-course dinner with drink pairings, tax, and tip.
