Chef's Table Events bring foodies together in an exclusive, intimate setting. Each restaurant we visit takes care to show off its best, and each experience is exquisite, unique and is an ideal way to explore Chicagoland's culinary scene without spending a fortune.
Green Door Tavern is Chicago's oldest tavern. While they take pride in their history, they recently saw the need to bring their menu to more modern times.
“Our menu was stuck in the ‘80’s, so we brought it into the 21st century,” commented Lou Waddle owner of The Green Door. “To do the menu right, I asked my extremely talented friend Dirk Flanigan if he could give us some direction,” added Waddle. With the consultation of James Beard Award Nominee chef Dirk Flanigan, a new menu was created in a matter of weeks.
Here’s what Chef's Table host Tommy Hensel had to say about their revamped cuisine:
"Go. Go now and go often. Waddle and Flanigan have created a distinctly different menu with new twists on old standards. The results are superb. I was lucky enough to try some of the new menu items created with the consultation of chef Dirk Flanigan. Afterwards, of course, I needed a crane to lift myself out of my chair, but the overindulgence was worth every bite."
You can go on June 9 as we explore their new menu at our exclusive event in their private speakeasy.
