This year’s sold out Kouzina 2015 at National Hellenic Museum, may well have been the best one yet.
Kouzina 2015 round-up
Last week, one of the season’s most anticipated events was a rousing success. Chicago’s top chefs wowed guests at Kouzina at National Hellenic Museum with amazing dishes — their twists on classic Greek cuisine, or a new dish invented with traditional ingredients. Honestly, I can’t pick one as a favorite; it was like being in foodie heaven.
Here are some highlights…
There were just too many yummy dishes to list. Just don’t miss it next year!
And there was more!
We couldn’t wait to devour the sweet treats in the oh-so swanky Dessert Lounge, and the bakers did not disappoint!
We tasted some wonderful Greek wines, and even got to sample a locally brewed beer, made by the Greek-owned Maplewood Brewery & Distillery (more about them coming up soon!).
Sold out again
The event sold out well before it started. Lots of kefi was flowing along with the drinks and great food. With that kind of vibe, no one wanted the night to end. Some people were so excited, they had to shout OPA from the rooftop — as in the rooftop deck, with it’s spectacular skyline view, which was indeed open! Kouzina 2015 did not disappoint. Be sure to get your tickets well in advance next year.
The only bad thing is now that we have to wait until next year to experience it once again.
National Hellenic Museum‘s Kouzina is an annual event. NHM is located at 333 S. Halsted Street in Chicago’s Greektown. 312.655.1234
