Restaurant Lineup for Green City Market BBQ 2012

New, 1 comment

Last year, when the Green City Market Chefs' BBQ Benefit hit Lincoln Park, the mercury was ready to pop out the top of thermometers. The humidity was nearly 100 percent. And chefs had to down copious amounts of Goose Island Sofie just to stay hydrated. There's no promise the weather will cooperate this year for a more pleasant and less sticky affair on July 12, but one thing is for sure: No matter how hot or wet it is, the food is still going to kick ass.

Many of last year's restaurants, like Urbanbelly, Boka, City Provisions, Leopold, The Gage/Henri, Hot Chocolate, Balsan, Nightwood/Lula Cafe, Franks N Dawgs, Osteria Via Stato, Naha, Province, Sepia and more will return. So far, nine new restaurants have joined the roster: Anteprima, Browntrout, C-House, Telegraph, The Trenchermen, Vera, Vincent, Yusho and La Sirena Clandestina.

As always, a number of beverages will be on hand to help quench your thirst. Watch for Wirtz Beverage to host a tent, North Shore Distillery, Koval Distillery, local brewers like Half Acre, Two Brothers, Metropolitan and Piece (as well as Bell's from Michigan), Virtue Cider, Crop to Cup Coffee and various wineries like Candid Wines, Illinois Sparkling Co. and Midwest Wine Selections.

Tickets for the July 12 affair are already on sale and they usually sell out well in advance of the event. General admission tickets cost $125 (Friends of the Market members pay $100) and VIP tickets cost $250; kids 12 and under cost just $25.
