May/June 2015 Publisher's Letter
Colorful Chicago neighborhoods, world-class restaurants and a sparkling Lake Michigan all come together as the returning backdrop for this year's National Restaurant Association's Restaurant, Hotel- Motel Show. And let us tell you, it's a fantastic time to be here.
From the buzzed about restaurants making springtime debuts to the chefs who have called Chicago's thriving culinary scene home from the start, this industry is a driving force in Chicago's existence. Whether you're reserving space at the city's Michelin-starred concepts, maneuvering the streets to find a tuckedaway gem, or just plotting booths to see at the show, take time to flip through our pages and plan ahead for your NRA Show visit—our NRA product showcase might be a good place to start (page 23).
Or take note of the equipment, ingredient and culinary trends we've written about. It's all here—in Chef Magazine and in Chicago. And don't forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook throughout the show for culinary updates and happenings.
