Get ready for the multi-course menus crafted by celebrated Chicago chefs Sarah Grueneberg & Dirk Flanigan, along with world-class mixology pairings, live music, and an exclusive art exhibition curated by Michael Weintrob, all inspired by Chicago’s rich legacy in music.
Our Menu for the evening
I am a self-proclaimed non-adventurous food eater, so when I had the opportunity to try out something to “Rock my Palate,” I was pleasantly surprised. I actually loved the Charred Octopus by Chef Flanigan (complete with Santa Claus Melon – so unique and refreshing!) and the Baby Artichokes with Ricotta by Chef Grueneberg were delicious as well. My other favorites included the Tie Die Pasta and the Cardamom Panna Cotta. I definitely stretched what I typically would choose for myself and was able to experience that thanks to Mastercard!
The Floating World Gallery was a beautiful, intimate setting. With dim lighting and elegant table settings, I can imagine having an intimate event there and just enjoying the room. The photography was breathtaking – with up close photographs & unique use of props – these larger than life images captured my eye and showed the true artistry of Photographer Michael Weintrob.
You can experience more of this fabulous event through the eyes of photographers here.
