Thank You
For Joining Us To
Go Gourmet

Thanks For "Go"-ing With Us This Year

From dinners, to demos, to darn good burgers all around town, this year's Chicago Gourmet supported local restaurants while celebrating the City's diverse culinary landscape.

Go Gourmet this September included delicious, intimate dinners from a celebrated mix of local restaurants and cuisines, and celebrity chef virtual cooking demos where viewers watched, learned, and ate alongside with fun meal-kits delivered right to their home.

And, you just couldn't stop the Hamburger Hop. To kick off the month, Can't Stop The Hop presented by DoorDash took place around the City and beyond. Diners ate out or at home and enjoyed burgers, supported the restaurants, and voted for their favorite.

Most importantly, ALL efforts this year supported the IRAEF Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. During these unprecedented times, Chicago Gourmet, from the Illinois Restaurant Association and presenting sponsor Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, remained committed to celebrating safely and supporting the community.
