Hide & Seek 2015

March 21, 2015

Longman & Eagle is pleased to again be involved in the annual Hide & Seek dinner, a partnership with Monique Huston and Land and Sea Dept., a special off-site event celebrating WhiskeyFest Chicago.

The event, taking place at the Land and Sea Dept. studio, brings L&E founding chef Jared Wentworth together with a fantastic group of distillers and producers of whiskey, for an evening of conversation, food, whiskey and more.

This year, representatives from Brovo, Bunnahabhain, Charbay, Deanston, Duncan Taylor, High West, Osocalis and Syndicate 58/6 will be on hand to discuss and taste their various processes and products, set within the context of a seated dinner with a menu created by Wentworth and Longman executive chef Matthew Kerney.

Chad Hauge in Austin

January 22, 2015

Last year, we had the occasion to befriend a number of the fine folks involved in the Bunkhouse hotel and McGuire Moorman restaurant groups – both based in Austin, Texas – over the course of a couple of different timeframes in Chicago last year, mutually affecting experiences that have since become deepening, sustained relationships.

Through this, Chef Alexandra Manley, of the McGuire Moorman Group, has invited Longman & Eagle principal bartender Chad Hauge to participate in a special dinner in Austin, taking place on Sunday, January 26th, where he’ll creative a special menu of drink and spirit pairings.

If you happen to find yourself in Austin this weekend, we’d love for you to join us!

L&E x 5

January 14, 2015

Join us at Longman & Eagle on Tuesday, January 20th, as we celebrate our five-year anniversary.

It’s hard to recall now, but when Longman & Eagle opened five years ago, it was a real departure. It was too dark, we were told. Oh, and way too loud, too. And so many beards! Folks told us that whiskey was for old men, and that the Old Fashioned cocktail was, well, ‘old fashioned’.

Five years on, Longman is still probably too dark, and, yes, probably still way too loud, and we still think whiskey tastes pretty damn good. Just the same, it seems like folks have gotten used to us, and we’ve shared many, many great times over the course of our last five years.

To celebrate, we’re having an open house on Tuesday, January 20th, from 5pm to 10pm. We are clearing the tables, offering up complimentary servings of some of our house favorites, including ‘baby’ Steigls, Negroni di Aquila cocktails and Wild Boar Sliders. (And there’s a strong chance Cabin Still Whiskey and cans of Old Milwaukee will make an appearance, too.)

(We won’t be offering dinner service proper, but the bar and bar snack menus will be available, with items for purchase.)

Longman has seen so much support over the last five years, patronage we have and continue to appreciate. We’d love to have customers, friends, lovers, neighbors and more join us in celebrating what has been a really remarkable five years, a period marked by so many fond memories and good times.

Josh Kurpius

December 10, 2014

We are so very pleased to be showcasing the photographic work of Josh Kurpius at Longman & Eagle currently, an exhibition of works that will be on display in both the restaurant proper and the OSB for the immediate future.

Kurpius is regarded for his photographs of motorcycles, motorcyclists and the surrounding culture, vivid testimonials to the pursuit of good times, personal freedom, and out and out ramblin’. A comprehensive survey of his work was recently exhibited at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.

We encourage you to visit Longman to see the works, and we also suggest spending some time perusing his site, as the stuff is, truly, magic.
