Come September, the spotlight is on Bon Appétit presents Chicago Gourmet. The nation’s premier culinary festival celebrates all things food, drink and entertainment with a spirited 2019 theme – Lights, Camera, Napkin! – and is ready to show hungry fans exactly why “there’s no business like show business.” The highly anticipated pre-sale opens Thursday, April 11 at 10 a.m. CST at chicagogourmet.org.

“We are so excited to celebrate Chicago Gourmet’s 12th year with this new theme,” said Sam Toia, President and CEO of the Illinois Restaurant Association. “Chicago has always been a destination for world-class dining and entertainment – including theatre, comedy, film, television and much more. We look forward to bringing the city’s entertainment scene and culinary world to life through an award-winning lineup of programming and events.”
