If you're in Chicago the week leading up to the James Beard Awards, consider going to one of the more than 100 Chicagoland restaurants that will create customized dishes or menus inspired by the James Beard Foundation's namesake, James Beard, a pioneer of American dining.
Now in its fifth year, James Beard Eats Week brings together the restaurant community and the public to celebrate the James Beard Awards weekend. Restaurants participating in Eats Week donate to the James Beard Foundation Scholarship Fund, which supports aspiring Chicago culinary students on a path to success in the hospitality industry. In 2018, Eats Week raised $13,900 for the scholarship program.
James Beard Foundation events permit guests age 21 and older.
