What to Eat at Reno, Opening Tomorrow

Logan Square's Reno had us at Montreal-style wood fired bagels. We haven't ever been to Montreal, we have no idea really what makes them different, just the prospect of having a new wonderful kind of bagel... hey, like Phillip Baker Hall in Boogie Nights, we like simple pleasures. It also struck as a pretty ingenious business model, finding a niche that lets you serve breakfast in a wood-burning oven pizza place (without serving breakfast pizza, which is all kinds of wrong and ought to be confined to airports). So anyway, Reno, no idea why it's named for the middle of the desert, but woodburning oven with cool pizzas, a breakfast menu aimed at people commuting via the blue line right across the street, chef Johnny Anderes from Telegraph next door, a wine list by Jeremy Quinn who also does Telegraph and Webster Wine Bar, Stumptown Coffee it should be a hit from the moment it opens for the first bagel and schmear tomorrow. Here are the menus; the morning and lunch menus are both served all day until 5 p.m., dinner after 5 p.m., and there is free wifi until dinner starts.
