Da Beards (AKA Where To Eat in Chicago Now)

The James Beard Awards, yes, the food industry’s “Oscars” are set to take place yet again in Chicago on Monday, May 7th, but you can bet a lot of industry people are in town the weekend before, and they all have one thing on their mind: where do we eat (and drink)? So, we’re giving you the lowdown on where to do both, like a local, as we talk with Michael Gebert, the founder of the local food site fooditor.com that does quite a bit more than just listicles and Top 7 places to grab brunch. Then, we’ll meet Sharon Bronstein, one of the women behind the first-ever Chicago Style, a cocktail conference going on for four days after the Beards. Talk about a hangover. We’ll have all that, plus a note about pizza tours in Chicago. We’re rolling out the red carpet, and you don’t even need an invitation.
