Taste of Tremont

In case you live under a rock (just kidding) and haven't heard...the 8th Annual Taste of Tremont is THIS SUNDAY! This annual street festival will take place from noon until 8PM on Professor Avenue. Attendees can look forward to live music, artwork, booths filled with all kinds of treasures and goodies to purchase (like stuff from Banyan Tree, CLE Clothing Co., and more), great people watching, and of course the highlight...the food!

Last year was our first year attending. I vaguely remember sampling small dishes from Lolita, Lago, Rocco Whalen's famous taco truck from Fahrenheit, Ty Fun, and more. Here is a list of the 2010 participating restaurant vendors:

806 Martini & Wine Bar


Bistro on Lincoln Park


Dish Deli & Catering


Fat Cats

Fresh Fork Market

Grumpy's Cafe

Istanblue Grill

La Fuega

Lago Restaurant


Lucky's Cafe

Original Greek Gyro

Prosperity Social Club

Simply Irresistible

Sokolowski's University Inn


St. John Cantius Church

Tremont Scoops

Tremont Tap House

Ty Fun Thai Bistro

I know that some of my favorites are certainly included on that list, and there are several that I can't wait to try! This is one summer festival that you don't want to miss, so I hope to see you there!

I AM SO CRANKY: I am missing this year's Taste! I have a family BBQ to attend. Bah- don't they know this is like my Christmas?!?

Last year at this event is where I discovered bắc, but I haven't made it to the restaurant since opening. Since I dropped the ball the first time, maybe you and I can schedule our "talking shop" meeting for a meet up there soon?... let me know!

Aw too bad! I'd love to meet up there soon. I've heard good things and it's so close to home! How is your week of the 2nd? My next two are crazy.

QLF- I just saw your comment. I would have loved to meet up. It's always fun meeting people in person. I hope that you enjoyed the festival!
