Food Fun Friday

Food Fun Friday

It’s The MASTER’S weekend!!! And Easter and Passover, haha. If you’ve followed me on Twitter this week you know I’m a fan! What a fun week to see the practice rounds but I did look at my buddy and think – people think golf in general is boring this place is packed with people watching other people practice golf! Anyway...enough about golf…

Lot of cool events and last minute options for Easter and Passover Catering and dining options.

Have a great weekend and look for more next week!

In advance of grilling season, Executive Chef Scott Walton of Markethouse Restaurant and Bar (611 N. Fairbanks) will introduce his new line of made-to-order sausages, bacons, pâtés, and mustards. The carry-out menu is inspired by Markethouse’s farm-to-table philosophy, as well as the need for a quality selection of meats to be cooked at home. For Walton, the housemade sausage program is a natural extension of his commitment to providing quality ingredients like the use of his rooftop garden and dependence on local purveyors.

The made-to-order sausage menu, available for viewing on www.markethousechicago.com on April 1, will be offered seven days a week during the restaurant’s normal business hours. Markethouse requests that customers place their orders at least 48 hours in advance by e-mailing housemadesausages@markethousechicago.com.

A new dinner game will be born on Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30pm, when Henri (18 S. Michigan Ave.) invites adventurous diners to witness Chicago's finest bartenders and Executive Chef Dirk Flanigan participate in Le Mysterieux Festin, which is an innovative evening of culinary roulette that presents a five-course Grand Tasting of cocktails and cuisine.

Prior to the one-of-a-kind affair, Henri Spirits Director Clint Rogers and co-Host Eric Hay (Wirtz Beverage) will invite Bartenders Ronnie Higgins (Bangers and Lace), Kris Von Dopek (Duchamp), Luke LeFiles (Hot Chocolate), Mike Page (Vie), and Josh Pearson (Sepia) to select one ingredient at random from hundreds of options to serve as a featured element of their cocktail. Their chosen ingredient will also determine the flavor profile that Chef Flanigan must feature in that specific course's dish. While both parties will know the secret ingredient they have in common, neither will learn how the other plans to utilize it until the pairing comes together. The evening's menu will reflect this lottery of ingredients, where the winning combination of flavor profiles will be a true testament to the talents behind the bar and in the kitchen.

Henri's Le Mysterieux Festin costs $100 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity, which includes hors d'oeuvres and the five-course dinner with cocktail pairings. Seating is limited to 60 guests. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling 312.578.0763 or by visiting www.henrichicago.com.

On Sunday, May 13, in honor of Mother’s Day, Executive Chef Scott Walton of Markethouse Restaurant and Bar (611 N. Fairbanks), will cook a feast at the home of the Facebook fan who receives the most “Likes” on a post describing their favorite culinary experience with their mother. To win the ‘Like My Mom’ contest, fans must post this experience on the Markethouse® page Facebook Wall(Facebook.com/markethousechicago). The entrant must then secure the most “Likes” of their post.

The contest will launch on Monday, April 9 when Markethouse® will ask fans on Facebook to describe their favorite food-related experience with their mom. The contest will continue until Monday, April 30, when the post—or Mom—with the most “Likes” will have the opportunity to have Chef Walton come to their home and cook for up to ten people (within a 15-mile radius of the restaurant), or opt to have brunch in the restaurant on Mother’s Day. In the event there is a tie, Chef Walton will choose the winner.

In October 2011, the owner of Barrio Urban Taqueria, Dorian Menchaca, began decorating his restaurant with canvas art from close friend and well known tattoo artist, Tony Reyes. The artwork depicted “Dia de los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead” with a funky-style, bright colors, intricate skulls and detailed flowers. Tony’s artwork instantly became a hit at the restaurant and now, five months later, guests can still see the original pieces from “Dia de los Muertos” plus Tony’s most recent work flanking the walls of Barrio.

Tony’s newest endeavor is a clothing line to add to his already popular Ready2Die brand which includes custom footwear, tattoos and paintings. The new clothing line will make its Chicago launch at Barrio where guests can meet and mingle with Tony and view and purchase his unique products. Guests attending the launch will also have the chance to sample some of Barrio’s signature passed appetizers and margaritas- chicken and vegetable sopes, quesadillas, guacamole, Rehab Margarita, Smokey Roja Margarita and the Diversey Pkwy Margarita.

Monday, April 9, 5-7 p.m.
The event is complimentary. Tony’s pieces start at $50 and up.
