Itinerary
Get ready to take a stroll and taste some of the best foods Chicago’s downtown has to offer! The Fabulous Quintessential Culinary Tour of Chicago explores Chicago’s central business district, the Loop, home to many of Chicago’s famous buildings, restaurants, and Millennium Park.

You’ll enjoy 6 food tasting stops (enough for lunch) all of which are included in the ticket price. Your walking adventure will visit (subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances):

  • Pizano’s Pizza has been a family tradition, serving “World famous gourmet deep dish pizza”, for over 60 years. The best in Chicago!
  • The Goddess and the Baker— Enjoy a chocolate dessert from this local bakery and cafe. Specializing in desserts all day, this unique spot also offers gourmet coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • The Berghoff is oldest family run-establishment in Chicago. Opening in 1898, it now serves Chicagoans, ‘tradition with a twist’, as well as classic German favorites and their own line of beers. Special Note: From November 22 until January 1, the Berghoff will be replaced with the Billy Goat Tavern.
  • Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique, a cupcake shop and more unique to Chicago! Any of their confections is sure to satisfy just about any sweet tooth.
  • Taste a classic Italian beef sandwich at Al’s Beef, who’ve been making these famous Chicago sandwiches since 1938.
  • Fannie May Chocolates has been serving Chicagoans decadent chocolates since 1920.
  • Visit the Chicago Cultural Center, home to the world’s largest Tiffany glass ceiling. (Note: Chicago Cultural Center is closed for some special occasions and most holidays). Learn about landmarks like the Art Institute of Chicago, City Hall, Willis Tower, Daley Plaza and more! Get a glimpse of Chicago’s famous Millennium Park and “The Bean” as we walk by.
Be sure to come hungry!

The advice on their web site is to do this early in your trip and this was advice well taken. The tour is both a food tour but also an introduction to downtown Chicago. By the end of the tour we were stuffed. Plus our...More

Good day, Please let me introduce myself as the Concierge Unlimited International Concierge on behalf of Naperville Woods Office Center located at 1000 & 1100 E Warrenville Rd., Naperville, IL. We house over 1200 employees in our two adjoining buildings, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Graybar and Gallagher Associates. I am currently working with NAI Hiffman (Property Management of buildings) to schedule upcoming tenant events within our buildings. These events include (but are not limited to) the following: Pop-up tables offering discounted or special introductory rates/specials for various services including Blink Mobile Beauty Spa, etc. And are looking to expand our spa/health/fitness options. We also schedule monthly Food Truck Festivals, Blood Drives, Home Safety seminars and Community Food Drives, for example. These are all part of our tenant/building amenities. I am interested in gathering information regarding whether your establishment would like to participate in a sales/marketing opportunity to reach out to our tenants/employees and increase your overall sales perhaps by sending a sales representative to our location and promote any “specials” you may have, preferably the tenants and employees would be able to purchase tickets so you can track your success immediately, however we have had vendors simply offer online incentives, discounts, etc. We do advertise these events via a monthly newsletter as well as flyers posted in various locations within our buildings, and tenants look forward to these events and specials with excitement! Please note: this is of no cost to the vendor and we are very flexible with time and dates. Please let me know if this is something you and your team would consider. Thank you!
