You and a guest will join Chef Mantuano (Spiaggia; Terzo Piano; Bar Toma; River Roast) and Chef Bannos (Heaven on Seven; Purple Pig) for a personalized tour of afternoon of eating food in the Windy City.
Regarded internationally as an influential culinary force, Chef Tony Mantuano is the chef/partner at Spiaggia, the only four-star Italian restaurant in Chicago. Awarded the 2005 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: Midwest, Mantuano worked in several Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy before opening Spiaggia in 1984 to critical acclaim, and has since gone on to win The Chicago Tribune’s highest culinary prize, The Good Eating Award, and named a Food & Wine Best New Chef in 1986.
Jimmy Bannos, a third-generation restaurateur, worked at his parents' diner when he was growing up between the age of 9 and 20. After receiving his formal culinary education at Washburne Trade School, Bannos became infatuated with Crescent City cooking in the early 1980s and worked with famous New Orleans chefs, such as Paul Prudhomme at K-Paul's, Frank Brigtsen and Emeril Lagasse.
