In case you didn’t notice the 20-something degree drop in the past 24 hours, summer is on the way out. Take advantage of what’s left of the season’s produce at the Fruits from the Farm Brunch hosted by Sepia and Seedling. The $25 (minus tax/gratuity) four-course prix-fixe brunch-a-thon includes:

Round one
Assorted pastries

Round two
Melon soup
-or-
Fruit bowl with ricotta chantilly

Round three
Souffle pancake with roasted apples
-or-
Applewood smoked bacon and peach sandwich
with brioche and duck fat potatoes
-or
Amish chicken breast with pear, arugula, and
cipollini onions

Eggs benedict with pork belly, apricot glaze, and
mustard hollandaise

Round four
Chocolate and fruit
Coffee and tea

And what brunch is complete without a little boozin’? If you’ve got an extra dough for a drink or three, three specialty cocktails — made with fresh fruits from Seedling, of course — are available for the event, including:

The Farmhand’s Daquiri Rhum Ron Clement VSOP, peach and apricot puree, pure sugar cane syrup, Gilka caraway seed liqueur, fresh lime juice

Watermelon Caipiroska Muddled watermelon and limes, organic agave nectar, organic Square One cucumber vodka

Cantaloupe Cooler Cantaloupe puree, Northshore Aquavit, honey, lemon juice, soda

Seating is limited and bound to sell out, so it’s recommended you make a reservation by calling 312-441-1920.
