Chicago’s reputation as a world-class foodie destination has exploded in recent years—in fact, the midwestern berg was named the 2017 Restaurant City of the Year by Bon Appetit. Join us as we head to the Windy City to explore its Michelin-starred eateries, including Michelin 3-star restaurant Alinea, Michelin 2-star restaurant Smyth, and Michelin 1-star restaurant EL Ideas.

In between gourmet tasting menus, you’ll explore the city in style during this all-inclusive weekend, traveling up the Chicago River aboard a private yacht on an architecture tour, sipping artisan cocktails in the trendy lounge of The Violet Hour, and hand-rolling your own truffles at Vosges Chocolate. Throughout the weekend, stay in luxury Gold Coast accommodations at Thompson Chicago.

  • EL Ideas

    Enjoy a one-of-a-kind feast at EL Ideas, an innovative fine dining restaurant helmed by chef Phillip Foss that removes the barrier between the kitchen and the guest. Get to meet and interact with the chef.
