Chef's Table Events bring foodies together in an exclusive, intimate setting.
Each restaurant we visit takes care to show off its best, and each experience is exquisite, unique and is an ideal way to explore Chicagoland's culinary scene without spending a fortune.
Long-time Chicago restaurant vet and world traveler Dudley Nieto puts a distinct global spin on the simple street foods of his native Mexico. Inside Rojo Gusano's two breezy casual, beach-themed locations, Nieto serves-up familiar favorites, with an elevated fusion twist.
