2013 Taste of Chicago Restaurants, Food Trucks

Taste of Chicago begins July 10 in Grant Park



    Spend Memorial Day Weekend at The St. Charles Fine Art Show

    Ahead of the 33rd annual Taste of Chicago, running July 10 to July 14 in Grant Park, the city announced the 35 restaurants and 14 food trucks participating in the food fest.

    “Taste of Chicago is a great long-standing tradition of summer in the city,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said. “As our culinary reputation has grown on the national stage, this event continues to reflect the vibrant and diverse restaurant community of Chicago with old favorites and new, exciting worldwide cuisines."

    Strips of 12 food and beverage tickets will be available for $8. Each restaurant will offer signature items as well as "taste" portions costing $2.50 or less.

    Before and during evening concerts at the Petrillo Music Shell, attendees can purchase food from trucks parked just east of the lawn at the pavilion. The mayor's office said food trucks will start serving an hour before each concert and serve for the duration of the show.

    Trucks will serve three or four regular-size portions and two "taste" portions and will accept the same food and beverage tickets as other Taste booths.
