Eat More Art at EXPO CHICAGO

Eat More Art at EXPO CHICAGO

For its sixth edition, Eataly will partner with EXPO CHICAGO: The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, from September 13 to 17 at Navy Pier’s Festival Hall!

While you browse some of the world's most incredible contemporary and modern art, eat some, too! At EXPO CHICAGO, you can enjoy your favorite housemade items (think: fresh mozzarella, focaccia, and pastries) alongside small plates prepared by our chefs. Once you fill your plate, stop by our on-site demonstrations and see how our experts make fresh pasta and mozzarella, or grab a bite from a freshly-opened wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano DOP.

Need a boost? Our amici from Lavazza will be in the main dining area to offer Italian coffee and espresso alongside our Gelato Cart serving housemade gelato and sorbetto.

“We are honored to partner with EXPO CHICAGO to offer a menu of artisanal dishes paired with a world-class art experience right here in Chicago,” said Eataly USA CEO Nicola Farinetti.

“There are many similarities between food and art,” added Farinetti. “Just as artists search for the highest quality tools and canvases, Eataly’s producers and artisans search for the highest quality ingredients. When you get to know your food or art, you start to understand the artists and how much labor and effort goes into making such a masterpiece.”

EXPO CHICAGO will take place at Navy Pier’s Festival Hall (600 East Grand) from September 13 to 17. Eataly will serving food both on the main exposition floor and in the Northern Trust VIP Collector’s Lounge.
