Rahm Emanuel Dines at the Field



    While his police force is out dealing with sometimes violent protesters at 22nd and Michigan Avenue, Mayor Rahm Emanuel was hosting a dinner at the Field Museum for the International Security Assistance Force.

    He was not monitoring the melee.

    "CPD has this under control," spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton said. " [They're] doing a good job and exercising restraint as protesters refused to disperse."

    The dinner menu was prepared by guest chef Carrie Nahabedian, from NAHA. The main course of dinner was a roasted rack of Colorado meadow lamb, a "fondant" of fingerling potatoes, cipollini onions, fava beans and tarragon.

    At an evening reception for delegates at Navy Pier, the mayor praised the Chicago police and fire departments, calling them "great ambassadors for the city."
