Returning in early 2015
First Bites Bash is the official kick-off event for Chicago Restaurant Week, produced by Choose Chicago.
On January 23, 2014, over 1,000 guests gathered inside the magnificent Great Hall at Chicago Union Station for a food-filled evening where they enjoyed savory and sweet tastings from over 50 of Chicago's most celebrated chefs and restaurants. Executive Chef Paul Kahan hosted the event, proceeds of which benefited two local charities, Gilda’s Club Chicago and Pilot Light.
Special thanks to our beverage partners Goose Island and Terlato Wines for providing beer and wine tastings to compliment the savory items from our restaurant partners.
