Join JBF Greens for an in-person celebration of our local restaurant community at PERILLA korean american fare in Chicago’s West Loop. Dinner will be an intimate indoor gathering with safety regulations strictly enforced as mandated by local governance. 
Drawing inspiration from the Korean flavors and ingredients of his childhood, chef Andrew Lim will create a three-course menu that reflects his contemporary approach to traditional classics and modern Korean dishes. Dinner will also include beverage pairings from J Vineyards & Winery.

Capital One is providing a special offer to those attending upcoming in-person events. Ticketholders will receive a one-time code for a free Beard Box—a curated meal kit for two developed by the Fellows participating in the Beard House Fellows program presented by Capital One.
*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 at your table, 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.
