Chicago diners would be wise to get familiar with a unique space in Roscoe Village that hosts pop-ups, private events, and also sells coffee and pastries from a pick-up window. It’s called Domaine, a space run by Brix Catering and Events. The space will also house former 42 Grams chef Jake Bickelhaupt’s pop-ups starting on November 30. Brix’s Zachary Greatting and company opened the space in October, but the coffee window service started on Monday at 2036 W. Roscoe Street.
Domaine will host Friday night dinners, with the first coming on December 1. The dinners will be BYO meals served family style. There’s also a coffee window serving drinks from Metric, and they’ll serve breakfast sandwiches, fresh croissants, and more. It’s only open, but Greatting said they’re considering adding weekend hours. Greatting started Brix four years ago. He’s a sommelier, formerly with RIA — the Gold Coast restaurant that closed in 2012 inside the Waldorf Astoria hotel.
While the coffee window portion will help locals get to know the Brix, the space is a response to a trend of smaller weddings and other private events, said Greatting. Domaine has room for 50 seated events and 100 for standing-only cocktail receptions. There’s also a roof deck.
“Our space was designed to allow people who want to have a dinner party or cocktail party, but may not have the space or want to do it in their home the perfect place to entertain without having to rent out a restaurant,” Greatting said.
But it’s not just about private events. There’s a new option for coffee and pastries in Roscoe Village. Domaine is open.
Domaine by Brix Catering and Events, 2036 W. Roscoe Street, coffee window open 7 a.m. to noon on weekdays.
