Join JBF Greens at Frontier for a happy hour in celebration of the 32nd annual James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards in Chicago. The West Town tavern will open especially for JBF Greens (and friends!) to toast the 2023 Awards.
Chicago community philanthropist, mentor to fellow Black chefs, and James Beard Award semifinalist, executive chef Brian Jupiter oversees Frontier, Ina Mae Tavern and Packaged Goods, and Jup’s Soups
For the occasion, chef Jupiter—commonly known as “Chef Jup” by his teams—will create a selection of hunted, farmed, foraged, and harvested bites inspired by what generations of pioneers ate and hunted on the trail. 


*70% of your ticket price will go directly to the host chef to support their business while 30% will go towards the Foundation’s national programming that is rooted in advocacy, racial equity, sustainability, and women’s leadership for the culinary industry.  

All reservations are non-refundable and must be made in advance. Should the event(s) be cancelled due to any unforeseen circumstances, including COVID-19, The James Beard Foundation will offer options including ticket exchanges, use of tickets for future events, and option to donate tickets.
