The word “authentic” is often overused in restaurants when referencing cuisine.

If you’ve ever traveled to Europe, especially Italy, then you probably have a good idea of what authentic food is all about. Chefs that specialize in Italian cuisine don’t always have the luxury of having grown up in the mother country, so they have to draw on their childhood kitchen experiences for inspiration and influence.
Such is the case with 200 East Supper Club‘s executive chef Tony Navarro.

The 200 East Supper Club is located on the main level of the historic Seneca Hotel. It’s a moderately-priced, business-casual spot that features live entertainment Tuesday through Saturday. The ambiance feels somewhat old school, with a splashes of elegant touches sprinkled throughout the main dining room.

Even a hard core Chicagoan would be forgiven if they weren’t thinking about warmer destinations this time of year.

If you can’t swing the plane ticket south, Nacional 27 might have the next best thing.

Every Friday night, the restaurant transforms into a sexy South Beach nightclub with sultry signature cocktails, Miami fashion week footage and dynamic beats performed by special guest DJs and live percussionists.

Sofo Bar, “The neighborhood bar south of Foster” has it’s 2nd Annual Dance on Sunday, July 20th!  This will be a particularly fun event because it’s an outdoor dance party sponsored by Malibu Rum, Jameson, Miller Light, Sofo, and its two sister joints, T’s and The Glenwood.  As you might’ve read in the Reader, The Glenwood was voted the 2008 “best bar for mixed company” and Sofo keeps in step with a jubilant, friendly, mixed-crowd scene.

Partial proceeds from the event will go toward the Chicago AIDS Marathon, so you’ll be contributing to a good cause while dancing in the sunshine all the way past sunset to some of Chicago’s well known DJ’s including DJ Greg Drescher, DJ Michael Serafini, DJ Chris Eterno, DJ Psycho-bitch, and DJ Dave.  I’m especially looking forward to DJ Psycho-bitch’s set between 6-8 p.m. because she puts together some fantastic mixes of tunes you know and love, but with her sense of the right bpm that keeps you moving. And in case you’re wondering, she isn’t a psycho or a bitch, but one of the friendliest DJ’s around and she’s also got a regular monthly gig at the Holiday Club, so be sure to check out her spinning sometime.
