On November 9, Jason Hammel of Lula Café will host the third annual Logan Square Chef's Dinner to benefit Comfort Station Logan Square, a multidisciplinary arts space that provides free cultural programming for the surrounding community. Since 2010, Comfort Station has held monthly art exhibitions, weekly films and concerts, potlucks, workshops, and lectures, each year further establishing itself as a micro-cultural center in the heart of Logan Square. Much of Comfort Station's operating and programming expenses are covered through donations and sponsorships from local patrons and businesses, with the annual Chef Dinner being the largest single source of funding that the organization receives each year.
Joining Hammel in his conscious, culinary pursuits are some of the neighborhood's most exciting chefs: Jared Wentworth (Longman & Eagle), Abraham Conlon (Fat Rice), Matt Danko (Sink/Swim), Tony Bezsylko, Ethan Pikas and Justin Behlke (Cellar Door Provisions), Matthias Merges (Yusho) and Alfredo Nogueira (Analogue). Comprised of celebrated artists in their own medium food, naturally this dream team of local epicurean talent will collaborate on a six-course feast. As Comfort Station's programming has grown in the past 4 years, Logan Square has become a culinary destination in Chicago, and the annual Logan Square Chef's Dinner reflects the broad array of talent that is located blocks from one another.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. The cost, meanwhile, is $165 per person with all food, drinks, tax and tip included. Tickets can be purchased here. Buy yours soon this reliably delicious Logan event is certain to sell out!
