“A Magnificent Taste” Culinary Event


The haute outdoor foodie event of the summer, A Magnificent Taste took place on August 22, 2014.  We celebrated the culinary delights of the district with delicious bites from Chicago’s best restaurants and celebrity chefs, surrounded by one of Chicago’s most iconic settings – The Magnificent Mile®. A portion of the proceeds benefited Common Threads, a Chicago-based organization dedicated to educating children from low-income families on the importance of nutrition.
