Back in July, we rolled out a special issue highlighting the 50 best dishes in Chicago. To celebrate the milestone, we invited more than 20 restaurants featured in the issue to serve up their creations for a sold-out crowd of 400 at Galleria Marchetti. Also on the menu: cocktails by Ketel One, Don Julio, and Tanqueray, and prosecco from 90+ Cellars topped with Spin-Spun cotton candy. Other treats included infused water from My Eye Dr., Chicago dogs and veggie tots from Hebrew National and Birdseye, and lounge set up by Apple Vacations. A portion of proceeds benefited Meals on Wheels.
Among the restaurants who slung dishes into the night: 5 Loaves, Beatrix, Boefhaus, Calumet Fisheries, Dos Urban Cantina, Duck Inn, Edzo’s, Joong Boo Market, JP Graziano, Funkenhausen, Labriola, Luella’s Gospel Bird, Qing Xiang Yuan Dumplings, Rica Arepa, RPM Steak, Rosebud, S.K.Y., Table Donkey Stick, Tempesta Market, The Publican, Vivere, and Yugen.
