Join JBF Greens at Dove’s Luncheonette for a happy hour in celebration of the 31st annual James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards in Chicago. The beloved Wicker Park neighborhood hangout will open especially for JBF Greens (and friends!) to toast the 2022 Awards. 

Executive chef Sam O’Keefe will create a selection of festive Mexican-inspired bites that pay homage to the bygone neighborhood diners of Chicago’s past. Guests will also enjoy sparkling wine from J Vineyards & Winery, specialty cocktails from the eatery’s tequila and mezcal-focused cocktail program, and sounds of the 1960’s and 70’s Chicago soul and blues.   

*70% of your ticket price will go directly to the host restaurant while 30% will go towards the Foundation’s programs, including our Open for Good campaign to support independent restaurants.

Maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our guests, chefs, and entire restaurant team to experience our events is a top priority.  The James Beard Foundation will adhere to city, state and/or federal regulations along with the policy of our host restaurants, which may include: wearing masks when not actively eating or drinking, maintaining 3-feet of distance away from guests, or providing proof of vaccination. Ticket buyers attending the Greens event will be alerted of the final policy in an email at least two (2) business days prior to the event date. Thank you for your continued understanding and compliance with these measures for your safety and the safety of those around you. 

All reservations 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 a range of options, including ticket exchanges, option to donate tickets or a full refund.
