Pomp & Circumstance, Chicago IL | Merchant Profile

Pomp & Circumstance is a take on the 1950ís and 1960ís American era where ìfood was food and drinks were stiffî. Back to a simpler time where the food you ate was not processed and came directly from farms – fresh, sustainable produce. A time where the drinks were strong and everyone was looking for a good time. In the name, Pomp stands for the whole grandeur of Mad Men, the after work crowd with fancy cocktails. Circumstance explains the beatnik eraís food quality and freshness.At Pomp & Circumstance, you get to live life and enjoy the finer things without them being overly expensive. The executive chef Trevor Fleming has great relationships with local purveyors, so all of Pomp & Circumstanceís meats, cheeses, and produce do not come from farther than 150 to 200 miles. Everything is sourced from either Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, or Southern Michigan. Every single piece of food that is on your plate has a story, and anyone on staff will be able to tell you where it came from.The ëPot Roastí is a customer favorite; an incredible piece of meat that is so tasty and tender. The ëPomp Burgerí is another hot item. The patty consists of a secret unique blend from a farm in central Illinois. Topped with white cheddar, pickles, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pomp sauce – it is truly delicious! On the weekends, Pomp & Circumstance is open for brunch and they have a great outdoor patio with a retractable roof that can be used year round. They feature All You Can Drink Mimosas and a Create Your Own Bloody Mary Bar, which they refer to as ìfarm to drinkî, since they can be made with the same ingredients that come right out of the kitchen, like fresh bacon, sausage and quail eggs!Enjoy a night on the town or a relaxing weekend brunch at Pomp & Circumstance, where Food is Food and Drinks are Stiff.
