We look forward to welcoming you to our town, Chicago for the upcoming National Restaurant Show, May 18—21. While you're making final plans, I hope you take the opportunity to fit in dinner at one or more of the city's outstanding restaurants.
The city offers a multitude of restaurants with an abundance of choices in cuisine to please any palate. I found that diningout. com's Chicago edition offers numerous views for you to consider. Be sure to book your reservations early.
You may also want to explore our music scene to hear some great blues or jazz. Many of these clubs also offer food; everything from barbecue to gourmet appetizers and dinner. Go online to yelp.com/ chicago and search for live jazz clubs. Most of them are listed.
On another subject, thanks for sending us your favorite recipes to share with your fellow chefs. Please continue to do so and help us make Chef your must-read both online and in print.
