Taste of Chicago

An assorted lineup of 66 restaurants will participate throughout Taste of Chicago, July 9-13, the city's premier hunger-crushing food and entertainment festival in Grant Park. As if your taste buds weren't already watering enough, Taste of Chicago has announced a truckload of new food options for this summer's festival. Patience, patience...

A display of Chicago's rich culinary scene, Taste of Chicago gives attendees an endless spread of dining options from five-day restaurants to popular one- and two-day Pop-Ups and food trucks.

This year, Taste of Chicago welcomes 22 newcomers to the event, including Mariano's, which enters as a five-day restaurant and will feature a special In the Kitchen with Mariano's in the popular cooking demonstration area. With a reputation of freshness and variety, this popular Chicago vendor will surely find a welcoming audience at this year's Taste.

All vendors will offer signature items, as well as the requisite "Taste Of" portions priced at $2.50 or less. Many of these delicious samples will also include Humana Healthier Choice selections for those seeking lighter options. Taste of Chicago is free admission; tickets for food and beverages can be purchased in strips of 12 for $8.50.
