    The Experience

    Every first Monday of May, the most talented chefs in America trade in their toques for tuxes and gowns to prepare for the James Beard Foundation Awards, widely considered the most prestigious awards ceremony in the culinary world — and you're invited.


    You and a guest will kick off celebrations the night before at Chefs' Night Out, a pre-awards party in appreciation of both past and present nominees. The following evening, mingle with legends of the food world at the Lyric Opera of Chicago as the 27th annual James Beard Foundation Awards commence. You will nibble on canapés alongside stars in the food industry while cheering on your favorite chefs. Witness the game-changing moment in person as the winners are presented. This is the culinary event of the year you will not want to miss.


    • Two tickets to the James Beard Awards ceremony and gala on Monday, May 1st at 6:00 pm at Lyric Opera of Chicago
    • Two tickets to the invite-only Chefs' Night Out pre-party on Sunday, April 30th at Revel Fulton Market
