The stories of our lives — innovative ideas, thoughtful conversations, searing business strategies, winding tales, how are you’s and what are you up to’s — are told around a table.

Food For Thought believes in creating tables filled with the most flavorful dishes and amusing conversations in Chicago and beyond.

Our team whisks together ingredients, community and a generous amount of sustainability. Add service, toss in distinguished venues, transfer to a plate. And serve.

Operating since 1983, Food For Thought aims to provide a peek inside the mind of one of Chicago’s most distinguished chefs while serving food that is always worth gathering for. We seek to bring you and your community around a table and have those tables filled with perfectly personalized dishes. We believe in any service we provide, that a dish isn’t finished until it’s serving you and yours.
