Taste of Randolph kicks off Friday at 5pm, and while the entertainment line-up has been out for awhile, we've finally confirmed what you'll be eating. The 16 restaurants reflect some of the more casual options in the West Loop, so those expecting Au Cheval cheeseburgers and Girl and the Goat pig face will be disappointed. But on the whole, it's not a bad line-up.
Here's who will be there:
Grange Hall Burger Bar
The Great Grape
Nicholas Quality Meats
Publican Quality Meats
Dishes and drinks range from $3-$12, and of these options, there's a few standouts.
Publican Quality Meats is serving a porchetta sandwich ($12), jalapeno-cheddar brats ($8) and smoked andouille sausage ($8). That's not to be confused with Nicholas Quality Meats, which has an array of meat kabobs ($8-$9), which are more street fair-appropriate than most items available at the Taste.
Bill Kim's excellent BellyQ will have Korean tacos ($7) and passionfruit lemonade ($3).
Grange Hall Burger Bar will have its solid grassfed beef burger ($8).
After all that, finish up at Irish ice cream shop Cone, which has Jameson whiskey ice cream ($5).
