Prepare yourself for one massive picnic. Taste of Chicago has mouth-watering stops at every turn. This year, 82 restaurants will dish out tastes of their cuisine, including 37 new restaurants, 24 pop-up restaurants, and 17 food trucks.

This foodie feast dishes out not just tastes of Chicago classics — the hot dogs, pizza, Italian beef, cheesecake — but also the international influences that are tied to the city’s history as a melting pot of cultures. Delicious and diverse, menu items from Chicago’s international restaurants make their way downtown from the neighborhoods of the city.

For information on the world’s largest free-admission outdoor food festival please see the event overview.
