In the spotlight each September, Bon Appétit presents Chicago Gourmet delivers a culinary tour de force. On stage at Millennium Park’s Pritzker Pavilion, celebrity chefs present their favorite dishes while they cook, laugh, take questions – and selfies. Just beyond the stage, tents galore on the Great Lawn delight the crowd with delicious food, wine, spirits and beer tastings. Ready for a master class? Two seminar spots feature top sommeliers and mixologists opening bottles and minds with new wines to try and cocktails to shake.
So grab a glass (and a napkin) and join us as Chicago Gourmet celebrates 'Food + Entertainment' this year. Cue the chefs!

Friday Night Flights kicks off May 31 just as it did last year: at Gallagher Way beside Wrigley Field, where beer will be poured from more than 30 Chicago breweries. It also ends the same as last year: Sept. 13 along the Chicago Riverwalk. The series is intended to highlight the craft breweries operating in different neighborhoods across the city.
