The James Beard Awards, yes, the food industry’s “Oscars” are set to take place yet again in Chicago on Monday, May 7th, but you can bet a lot of industry people are in town the weekend before, and they all have one thing on their mind: where do we eat (and drink)? So, we’re giving you the lowdown on where to do both, like a local, as we talk with Michael Gebert, the founder of the local food site fooditor.com that does quite a bit more than just listicles and Top 7 places to grab brunch.
Then, we’ll meet Sharon Bronstein, one of the women behind the first-ever Chicago Style, a cocktail conference going on for four days after the Beards. Talk about a hangover. We’ll have all that, plus a note about pizza tours in Chicago.
We’re rolling out the red carpet, and you don’t even need an invitation.
