Returning Sept. 27 Near The Sinclair: The Annual Chicago Gourmet!

Chicago is known for its slew of talented chefs, and not just pizza chefs. The annual Chicago Gourmet serves as an opportunity to highlight the city’s most creative and talented food and drink experts from 250 of its top-rated eateries, breweries, wineries, and distilleries—and this year’s installment is kicking off Sept. 27!

It all beings with the Hamburger Hop competition in Millennium Park, during which chefs show off their creativity via inventive burgers. Then on Saturday and Sunday, the Grand Tasting tents take over the Great Lawn. Guests will be able to catch cooking demos from celebrity chefs, taste-test all different types of cuisine from across the city, and sample high-quality vino from some of Chicago’s best wineries. Nab a ticket (prices vary) to savor some top-notch grub and catch demos by local celebs like Rick Bayless and Diana Dávila.
