One night a year, some of the most exciting restaurants from Wheeling’s Restaurant Row, Prospect Heights, and neighboring communities come together for an evening of great food and drink. Taste of the Town 2018, on Thursday, 9/27 from 5-8 p.m., is almost upon us!

This special culinary event will feature more than 20 food service establishments, offering samples of diverse flavors from American, Asian, Korean, Mexican, and other traditions. Drink samples will also be available. Don’t worry – you’ll be plenty full before you even make one complete turn of the room (so save room if you have favorites!).

Last year’s restaurants included Allgauer’s on the Riverfront, Benihana, Big Bowl, Buca di Beppo, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, Liquor Barn, Market Square, Mezcal Mexican Grill and Bar, RAM Restaurant & Brewery, Rammy’s SUB Contractors, Salata, Saranello’s Ristorante Italiano, Superdawg, The Westin Chicago North Shore, Tuscany Wheeling, Twin Peaks, Wa-Pa-Ghetti’s Pizza, and Wildfire Steak, Chops & Seafood. They’re expecting even more restaurants on site this year! All will offer samples of their best and most popular dishes to impress diners through the event.

In addition to all the great food, you can enjoy musical entertainment, raffles, interactive games, and more. A silent auction to benefit the Indian Trails Public Library will also take place. Each attendee receives a coupon book with special offers from participating restaurants. Build upon what you’ve tried here and go visit your favorites later on! This is a great way to learn about north/northwestern suburban restaurants all at one time.
