Two of my favorite things baseball and food team up when Ballpark Fare Goes Gourmet at The Park at Wrigley.
The pitch: Which chef can spin the most unique gourmet twist on ball park food?
Fourteen celebrity chefs have accepted to run with the challenge to create “gourmet” ballpark food that will “knock it out of the park.”
- Jimmy Bannos Jr. | The Purple Pig
- Christine Cikowski & Josh Kulp | Honey Butter Fried Chicken
- Joe Flamm | Spiaggia
- Daniel Holzman | The Meatball Shop (NYC)
- Ricardo Jarquin | Travelle Kitchen + Bar
- Paul Kahan | One Off Hospitality
- Bill Kim | bellyQ
- Ed Kim | Mott Street, Ruxbin
- Rob Levitt | The Butcher & Larder
- John Manion | La Sirena Clandestina, El Che Bar
- Jeff Mauro | Pork & Mindy’s
- Ryan McCaskey | Acadia
- Chris Pandel | Swift & Sons, Balena
- Jason Vincent | Giant, City Mouse
Think “haute” dogs, upscale nachos, loaded fries and gourmet popcorn for starters–sure to be followed by some pinch-hitters and surprises.
The Park at Wrigley, in the shadow of historic Wrigley Field–home to the World Championship Cubs–provides the perfect outdoor venue complete with setting areas, green grass and tables where guests can gather to sample the chef’s creations while sipping on cocktails from Beam Suntory and wine from Robert Mondavi Winery along with musical entertainment featuring Billy Dec who will serve as emcee for the event.
General admission tickets are available for $99. VIP tickets are available for $149 and include access to The Park at Wrigley terrace for exclusive samplings of gourmet bites, enhanced mixology experiences and more. Click here for tickets.
