LOGAN SQUARE — The Little Pickle will serve its first customers next week.
The new lunch spot at 3703 W. Fullerton Ave. is set to open to the public Tuesday after months of renovations, according to husband-and-wife owners Lindsay Malinowski and Bradley Treusdell.
Patrons can expect a cozy, unpretentious vibe with prices to match. Hot sandwiches with fillings like roast pork, roast chicken and house-made seitan will cost $7.50 each.
Treusdell, formerly a chef at The Radler, is offering a selection of house-made pickles, as well as a variety of sauces and sides like deviled egg potato salad, to pair with the sandwiches.
“There’s nothing I love more than a good sandwich. I’m very Liz Lemon about my sandwiches,” Malinowski quipped back in May when the project surfaced, referring to Tina Fey’s sandwich-loving fictional character on “30 Rock.”
The couple, who live in the building, said the neighborhood is lacking in solid yet affordable lunch spots with a casual vibe.
“We want to focus on the people who are already in the neighborhood as opposed to bringing outside people in,” Treusdell said in May.
Malinowski has years of experience waitressing and bartending for various restaurants including Letizia’s Fiore and Enoteca Roma.
