The Kick off to Chicago Restaurant Week is the First Bites Bash. I went last year and had a lot of fun! You get to sample bites from 70+ Chicago restaurants. Ticket proceeds benefit Pilot Light, a local non-profit that helps kids make healthier choices through food education. This year’s First bites bash hosts are:
- Chef Joe Flamm from Chicago’s Michelin-starred Spiaggia and Café Spiaggia. He was also the winner of Bravo’s Top Chef Season 15.
- Mixologist Jarmel Doss who is the assistant bar director at The Aviary. She was named the winner of the inaugural Chicago STARS Mixology competition by the National Restaurant Association. She was also Chi@Glance December Spotlight Feature.
