The mayor apparently wants a gourmet version of the Taste, one that will show off Chicago as a world-class culinary destination. Don’t get me wrong, I love sampling Robinson’s Ribs, Harold’s Chicken, Ricobene’s and other street food favorites. But hey, our cuisine is more upscale than some of the country gives us credit for.
There’s a May 20th press conference, but until then details are pretty slim. Rumor has it that a number of big-name chefs are already on board. I’ll fill everyone in with all the details as soon as they become available.
