Once a year in Barrington, dozens of area chefs come together and prepare their specialty dishes for us all to sample under one roof. It’s the perfect place to be for local foodies or indecisive folks like me who have a tough time picking one restaurant for our occasional evenings out. Give your kitchen the night off on Thursday, October 28th, and head out to the 7th Annual Barrington Taste Fest & EXPO for a local sampling of the savory and the sweet at the “Social Event of the Season”.
The Taste Fest and Expo will take place next Thursday night, October 28th, from 6-9:30PM. Here’s who’s serving up special plates: Apple Villa Famous Pancake House, Armanetti of Fox River Grove, Brunch Café, Clarke’s Bakery & Deli, Cook Street Coffee, Egg Harbor Café, Fat Bottomed Girls, Francesca’s Famiglia, Gavi Café, L’Eiffel Bistrot & Creperie, Jerseys Pizza & Grill, Kernel Fabyan’s Gourmet Popcorn Shoppe, McGonigal’s Pub, Millrose Restaurant, Park Avenue Wine Bar, Romano’s Macaroni Grill, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Sweet Pea Cakes, The Great Grape, The Lucky Monk, The Onion Pub & Brewery and Tropical Smoothie Café. Now that’s a lot to choose from! There will also be sample servings offered by local breweries and wine representatives.
With live music in the background, Barrington’s best chefs on site and prizes to win like a diamond and an iPad, this is going to be a great night!
