Saturday Family Dinner

  • Fulton Market Kitchen 311 North Sangamon Street Chicago, IL, 60607 United States (map)


Doors/Cocktails at 6pm - Dinner: 7 - 9pm

Join us Saturday, October 7th at Fulton Market Kitchen for an intimate "FAM-to-TABLE" dinner for 100+ special guests, press and VIPs, featuring chefs presenting unique takes on one of the most important meals any chef can serve in a restaurant: the staff meal.

Featuring several collaborative courses created by Fulton Market Kitchen chef Chris Curren, alongside Rebecca Zuckerman (Bonhomme Hospitality), John Manion (La Sirena Clandestina, El Che Bar) and Pat Sheerin (City Mouse), the dinner will start with cocktails provided by lauded bartender Liz Pearce (Beatnik, The Drifter), and then a series of paired drinks throughout the evening, with spirits provided by ALTOS Tequila.

This convivial and family-driven event bridges the front and back-of-house together in ways seldom experienced in restaurants; leaving guests with a deeper sense of the camaraderie and respect that chefs and bartenders bring to their work.
