Another Chef Showdown Coming Soon!
Yet another chef competition is coming, this time benefiting the Special Olympics.
A number of the downtown area's culinary kings and queens are set to go head to head in the fourth annual Chefs on the Grill event at the Plaza on the Grill from 6-9pm Sept. 14. Each chef will whip up a signature dish, then guests vote on their favorites. The winning chef gets bragging rights to the Chefs on the Grill trophy until next year's event.
Participating restaurants include Park Grill chefs Alex Shalev and Josh Taylor, as well as The Gage/Henri (Dirk Flanigan), Rhapsody (Dean Zanella), Chicago Firehouse (Kendal Duque), Lockwood (Val Benner), Custom House Tavern (Perry Hendrix), Aria (Beverly Kim Clark) and Atwood Cafe (Derek Simcik).
The ticket price includes unlimited food samples and a cash bar. Get the tickets here, which are $55 in advance or $60 at the door.
