Even by the high standards of Chicago fine dining, this night has it all:
• Dinner at EL Ideas (skipping the 3-month wait list)? Check.
• Some of the most creative people in food (like Food Film Fest creator George Motz
and the creators of Kitchit
): You bet.
• Free booze? Would you want it any other way?
The one-night-only event at EL Ideas will feature a meet and greet with some of the creative forces behind the Chicago Food Film Festival, plus an original menu crafted and served by Chef Phillip Foss. There will be a screening of the film short "French Fries and Ice Cream," about one of EL Ideas signature dishes.
