Combining Andersonville’s annual dessert and dinner crawls, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce (ACC) has created a bigger and better event that will offer up to 750 attendees a diverse selection of dinner, dessert and drink options.

With their largest participation of local businesses to date, the ACC will be offering an additional route this year on Wednesday, August 15 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Event participants will be able to choose between three routes (fork, knife or spoon) that will offer them 12 small plate selections at different locations. Vegetarian options will be available on request. For those with big appetites, there is also a new ‘the works’ option where guests can access two routes.

There will also be several new restaurants in the mix for 2018 including CESCAS Margarita Bar and Grill, Chutney Devis, FRÍO Gelato, Hutch American Kitchen + Bar and the highly-praised Passerotto. The event will also collaborate once again with the Andersonville Farmer’s Market by showcasing  Chiya Chai, Letizia’s and Pecking Order on Berwyn between Clark and Ashland.

“We’re very excited to be participating in our first Taste of Andersonville this year,” said chef and owner of Passerotto Jennifer Kim in an ACC press release. “This neighborhood has been so supportive of us and we can’t wait to share our own unique version of Korean cuisine with more members of this wonderful community.”

Check-in for the event starts at 4 p.m. on the day of the event at the Swedish American Museum, 5211 N. Clark. Tickets can be purchased online by noon on August 15 at http://www.andersonville.org/events/taste-of-andersonville/. If available, tickets can also be purchased the day of the event after 4 p.m. at the museum.
