Starting this Monday, 694 Wine and Spirits, 694 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, will be hosting a twice monthly Shift Series. They will be inviting chefs to come and take over the restaurant for the night. The chefs will bring a theme of their choice and create a 5 course (+dessert course) dinner and 694 will be providing pairings of boutique liquors and small batch wine and beers. The chefs will be challenged because 694 doesn’t have a full kitchen so the creative menu will come from the execution off of grills, presses, burners etc.
The first two dinners have already been set with chef Marianne Sundquist, (In Fine Spirits) creating a “Late Harvest” dinner on September 26th. On October 3rd, Sachin and Megan, the husband and wife team, from the Pilsen dining club (S&M Underground) have chosen a theme of “Roots.”
Future dinners will take place on the first and last Monday’s of the month. There are only 25 seats available with tickets costing $100 per head. You can reserve your spot by emailing email@example.com or calling 312-492-6620. Each event will take place between 6-9 PM.
