Wicker Park's Glazed and Infused
When Francesca's Forno closed at 1576 N. Milwaukee Avenue to remodel their restaurant and revamp their menu last year it was reported that owner, Scott Harris, was also planning on opening a doughnut shop there.
Apparently that day has come. Chicagoist is reporting the Francesca's Forno will, in fact, be serving doughnuts via their alter-ego Glazed and Infused in the very near future.
Although Harris will be opening up spots in a few CTA stations throughout the city, the Francesca's Forno spot in Wicker Park will be the first to open and according to an update we received from the folks behind the project, it looks like this new hot spot won't be opening until May. Stay tuned for details.
The doughnuts will be served through a window across from the entrance to the Damen Blue Line stop. Glazed and Infused will be open early.... and late.
Wicker Park Hours Mon–Wed 6:30am–10:30am; Thu 6:30–10:30am and 10:30pm–1:30am; Fri 6:30am–10:30am and 10:30pm–1:30am; Sat 8:00am–2:00pm and 10:30pm–1:30am; and Sun 8:00am–2:00pm.
Doughnuts prices will range from $2.75-$5. You can also buy coffee from Intelligentsia.
What type of doughnuts can you find? Sounds like they'll be serving up everything from the old-fashioned doughnuts to creme brulee doughnuts to the maple bacon long john, with an entire strip of bacon on top.
Just goes to show, people really do put bacon on everything.
