Hillary Lake was closing her cleaning service, and Bruce Longanecker Jr’s family was getting out of the grocery store business after thirty years. Only being in their 40ís, Hillary and Bruce needed to find something to do. As soon as they both realized that they shared a dream of owning a bar, they started looking for a location. Hillary and Bruce opened Sedgwick Stop, an American gastropub. ìWe spent a lot of time hanging out while we were dating, trying different places in Chicago that all have great food,î explained Hillary. She enjoys food, wine, cooking and entertaining. They did not want fried bar food; Bruce and Hillary wanted to offer fresh, good food that people would enjoy and keep coming back to order. ìWe try to keep it seasonal, comfort, yummy food,î said Hillary. The Best Grilled Chicken Sandwich was created with the help of Hillaryís workout trainer. This is far from your average boring chicken sandwich. A juicy grilled chicken breast topped with goat cheese, house made sun dried tomato paste, avocado, and arugula on tomato focaccia bread. Yum! Sedgwick Stop has fourteen draft handles and two nitro taps. ìBeer is one of my babies, I love to rotate the taps,î stated Hillary. She loves to support local breweries and small business owners. Sedgwick Stop has a Monthly Tap Takeover where they feature a Beer of the Month. Besides beer, another passion of Hillaryís is Bourbon. Sedgwick Stop offers occasional whiskey tasting events. There is always something new at Sedgwick’s!
