Chicago has a plethora of restaurant cuisines to choose from. Whether you’re looking for Italian, French, Southern, Asian, Chinese, and the list can go on…..we have it. About a month ago the Chicago Tribune announced a new festival we can add to our list this summer: Chicago Tribune FOOD BOWL Festival. Instead of a one day fest, how about 3 weeks?
Chicago Tribune Announces a New Kind of Food Festival…
It’s authentic. It’s innovative. It’s different.
It’s the best of the best from America’s Restaurant City of the Year. It’s FOOD BOWL.
And it’s putting Chicago’s renowned food and dining scene in the spotlight.
FOOD BOWL: Wednesday, August 8 – Sunday, August 26
Night Market: Friday, August 24 – Sunday, August 26
The Night Market finale event will be held at The Lakefront Green at Theatre on the Lake.
Food Bowl celebrates the chefs, restaurants, mixologists, innovators, entrepreneurs, critics, and connoisseurs who put Chicago at the forefront of the nation’s food and drink scene. The festival will showcase the distinct tastes and flavors of Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods.
In sponsorship with Beam Suntory, FOOD BOWL will feature collaborations with national and international culinary talent including chefs, mixologists, restaurants, and venues across Chicago.
