About the Dinner Series: The Come to the Table Dinner Series joins local chefs, farmers, innovators, and food advocates for three seasonal dinners at farm-to-table restaurants in Chicago. Each event includes a custom created farm-to-table menu, beverages, and lively discussion about the intersections of food, agriculture, and community. The series began in 2016 as a vehicle for discussing different food system topics over a shared meal at restaurants that also support sustainable local food & farms. Past restaurants include The Kitchen, Lula Cafe, Paul Virant/Boka Group, Farmhouse, Floriole, Honey Butter Fried Chicken/Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits, NoMi Kitchen, and Cruz Blanca Brewery & Taqueria. Now in its fourth season, the series is presented by Angelic Organics Learning Center and Green City Market. All proceeds benefit the missions and work of the hosting non-profit organizations. Partner restaurants and purveyors are committed to sourcing locally and sustainably whenever possible.
