Update on our 2015-16 Event Season

Cher Confrères and Consœurs,

Greetings! Welcome to our 2015-16 Event Season. As has now become our tradition, we will hold at least one Chaîne dinner event each month beginning September until June of the following year. Unless otherwise stated, all Chaîne dinner events will be held on the third Monday of each month. Mondiale will hold four or five events evenly spread over the season, mostly on Sunday afternoons.

Chaîne Chicago will reach a significant milestone in 2016 – we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary! To commemorate, we commit to double our efforts to give you a more exciting lineup of dinner events worthy of this momentous achievement.  We will continually seek and strive to seize unique dining opportunities in this fast and ever-changing culinary landscape of Chicago.
