good eats.

Clandstino is an underground supper club based in Chicago. The whole thing is put together by Chef Efrain and his wonderful crew. They put together dinner parties in various places around the city.

Here’s how it works: you sign up for their mailing list {it’s a safe one, no worries}. When a new party is planned, the folks at Clandestino let you know what’s on the multi-course menu, and the general area of the city where it will be held. A few days before the event, you are told the location! It’s byob, really casual and has fabulous food. Artists and musicians are featured at each event too {all local indie minded folks}.

Here’s why I love it: First, the food is amazing. Just amazing. I love that the dishes are made with seasonal, locally raised and grown food. I love the eclectic mix of people that attend…and I love supporting a young, talented chef. {the photos above were taken at an event that we hosted. It was amazing.}

I volunteered serving and prepping at the dinner right before yours in Bucktown! Seriously, they are exceptionally nice folks and it’s a great event for everyone. Community bonding via food/wine/ bourbon. Love.
