Bread & Wine is a neighborhood American bistro, wine bar and market on Chicago’s Northwest Side.
Owners Lisa Fosler Kelly, a lawyer, chef and the wine manager, and Jennifer Wisniewski, an experienced restaurant manager and developer who was involved in Naha and Café Absinthe transformed a vacant space that was previously a laundromat and converted it into an inviting, calm place where guests can gather, drink and dine.
Bread & Wine is a neighborhood restaurant serving American brasserie fair and our team has created a menu that could be characterized as delicious tributes to dishes prepared in the classic brasserie fashion. American dishes that change with the seasons and feature local ingredients. We’re mixing handcrafted cocktails, topping off ales, pouring delectable wines while filling small plates with all manner of special creations.
Guests can sit at the open kitchen and watch dinner being prepared, or choose one of the unique, local wood tables in the dining room. A ten-person bar and chef’s counter seek to encourage parties of one or two and provide plenty of space for those who prefer counter seating. Along with being a restaurant we are also a wine and spirits market, where we carry our own private label red, white and rose. We offer a curated selection of wine, beer and spirits to-go.
