Our friends at the Parrot Cage Restaurant are preparing to roll out their red carpet to Smooth Jazz listeners once again. They invite you to join Bill Cochran and me June 23, the first official Sunday in summer, for the next Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch.
With the historic South Shore Cultural Center and the magnificent Lake Michigan shoreline as the backdrop, the Parrot Cage will be unveiling a menu featuring summer specialties created by Executive Chef Angel Cruz and prepared by the students of the Washburne Culinary Institute, one of the City Colleges of Chicago. For the first time in 2013 diners will be able to enjoy the following:
- Grilled Alaskan salmon with summer squash pearl couscous.
- Farfalle pasta with shrimp artichokes.
- Slow roasted pork shoulder with tomatillo and habanero sauce with pinto beans and rice.
- Turkey meatballs with marinara and capellini pasta.
- Coffee barbecued braised brisket with sautéed Chinese nappa cabbage.
Traditional Sunday Brunch favorites such as fresh, made-to-order omelets and waffles, hash browns, creamy bacon grits, turkey sausage, house made peach cobbler and mini assorted desserts will complement Chef Angel’s summer specialties.
Also appearing at the Brunch will be Chicago singer Julia Huff. She will perform two sets, one at each seating (10:30am and 1:00pm).
The Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch always sells out, so make your reservation now. Call (773) 602-5333 or send an email to ParrotCageBrunch@ccc.edu.
Bill and I will see you on the 23rd!
