This Ukrainian Village spot offers breakfast and lunch, with dinner service following soon after opening. Helmed by chef Greg Bastien, who previously worked at Tavernita and Perennial, the restaurant serves up egg sandwiches, granola and quinoa cakes for breakfast, an expanded brunch with more sit-down options on weekends and seasonal lunch and dinner menus owner Chris Pappas described as similar to what you might find at Logan Square's Lula Cafe. Few of the dishes will be priced above $20, and The Winchester will have plenty of options for people with dietary restrictions. The owners hope to have a liquor license by January, after which they'll start serving a mix of domestic craft brews and European beers and a small wine program focused on family-owned estates and boutique wines based on Pappas' experience as Sepia's wine buyer and beverage director. Cocktails will incorporate fresh juices, kombucha and sodas made with cold-pressed fruit. The Winchester will also offer a rotating selection of smoothies and green juices and coffee from Metric Coffee and other local roasters. Part of the second floor will be used as an event space to host private parties and wine, cocktail, beer or coffee tastings.
