Set Your Sights High at Cellar Door Provisions

Lunch has never looked this good

We love a good pun, but raving about Cellar Door Provisions requires no wordplay. (It’s that good.)

The new Logan Square restaurant makes the most mindful salads and sandwiches in town, using ingredients gathered from nearby farms.

Owners Tony Bezsylko, Ethan Pikas, and Justin Behlke dreamed up the concept as co-workers at Dill Pickle Co-Op, then built the business with financial help from their families. They’re starting nice and slow, with limited hours and a small, rotating menu, until demand grows. (A sure bet.)

The tartine — a French open-face sandwich — is stacked: country bread topped with creamy house kefir, warm charred onions, and thinly shaved watermelon radish and carrot (pictured above).

Other menu highlights: smoked beets, lamb leg and bean soup, a must-try pear buckwheat scone, and top-notch loaves (Lula Cafe is a client). Still not full? Snag seats at CDP’s monthly Sunday dinner.

Simple decor — a reclaimed wood counter, white walls, communal tables — keeps the focus on the food.

Mission accomplished.
