The 7th annual “Chefs on the Grill” event in Chicago’s Millennium Park kicks off on Thursday, June 19th, from 5:30 – 9 pm. Gourmet chefs from all over the city ditch their kitchens and cook up signature grill creations downtown, and you get to help pick the winner! Plan for an evening of live music and fresh food from every slice of life: participating restaurants range from the all-exotic Frontier, to Italian-fused Tesori, all the way to urban cantina Taco Joint.
This grill-master competition also benefits Common Threads and the Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, which help children in underserved communities learn how to cook healthy meals and gives them the foundations to start careers. Fill your stomach and help the children.
Tickets are available online, at the event itself takes place at the Park Grill, centrally located right below the bean.
