Lincoln Park restaurant 2 Sparrows is best known for a super-seasonal breakfast, lunch and brunch menu that includes items such as shrimp and grits ($14), chilaquiles ($10), a salmon BLT served on a pretzel roll ($14) and even gourmet pop-tarts. But once a month, the spot opens its doors after-hours for its dinner series, in which chef Gregory Ellis teams up with a local wine, beer or spirits maker to craft a menu that expertly pairs with the libations.
