This past weekend I joined other members of Chicago Food Bloggers for a brunch at Public House. While I've been to Public House many times for dinner and/or drinks, this was the first time I'd attended for brunch. Honestly, I had no idea Public House even served brunch, but now that a bunch of Chicago bloggers know, we were happy to get the word out!
Chef Jeremy Tannehill was on hand to explain each of the dishes we would be sampling. The staff did a wonderful job setting up a buffet of miniature-sizes of each entree so we could try each without feeling like we would never eat again. If only every restaurant offered mini versions of its menu items (I think you can understand how hard it is to just have one bite when reviewing a restaurant!). The photos below are of the regular portions so you can get a feel for what to expect.
The staff passed around mini egg sandwiches with scrambled eggs, American cheese, arugula, tomato, and red onion, on a sourdough bun. The sandwich also had homemade turkey sausage which tasted like the real deal. I loved the crusty texture of the bun, but it was a tad on the greasy side (perfect for your post-St. Patty's Day hangover breakfast).
