I don't have a lot of time to post today, but wanted to put up some pictures from a media dinner I attended this past week at Artisan Table in Naperville. It is located inside the newly renovated Chicago Marriott Naperville. The entire hotel, formerly a Holiday Inn, got a makeover and the restaurant was no exception.
I was invited, along with other food writers and bloggers and the vendors who supply local, fresh ingredients for the menu. We met cattle farmers, a beekeeper, cheese maker along with the hotel and restaurant chefs and staff. It was a delightful and insightful evening with lovely food made with the freshest ingredients from local farmers...AND, a few menu items include honey, which comes from hives on the hotel's rooftop.
So, here's a few pictures from the start of our dinner. Look for more to be posted this week!
