Win A Free Preview Dinner at The Bedford

Wanna be one of the first people to check out what's certain to be the hottest restaurant to open in West Town this year?!

The Bedford's Executive Chef Mark Steuer (The Gage, Hot Chocolate) and beverage director Peter Gugni (Le Passage, Cantina) have given out hundreds of passes around town that are your "key" to get in.

Each one contains a number, and you have to be on Twitter to play the game. Follow The Bedford and tweet this message to them:

"Hey @thebedfordchi! I have key # ____ and want to #unlockthevault!"

I've got exactly 50 passes and one could be yours if you ask me nicely (and email me at igrooveon@gmail.com with your full name) . . .

They'll announce the winners next week!

UPDATE: I just got 60 more key cards! If you miss out on one, The Bedford boys tell 312DD that the next opportunity to snag one is during a pre-opening party at Bluebird at 8:30pm April 12.

Hello Audarshia - I would love a key! Was in the system for Next's tickets and it sold out too fast. Wanted to take my culinary school boyfriend there for his bday. A trip to The Bedford preview dinner would be a great bday treat!

Hello, all!

I am going to see to it that you ALL get keys because you ALL asked so nicely! :)

I will get them tomorrow (Friday), but I need for everyone to email me directly at igrooveon@gmail.com so I can get your full name so I can put it on the "key" cards and give you your #. Thank you so much. The guys over at The Bedford are so excited that you are excited.

Good luck to all!

are there truly keys left? We're trying to get in some Chicago fine dining before we have our first baby in a few short months and fine dining becomes a little less frequent in our lives :(. We would LOVE a key to experience the Bedford! Thank you!
