LOGAN SQUARE — Comfort Station will host its single biggest fundraising event of the year as seven Logan Square and Avondale-based chefs cook up a six-course feast for visitors.
Jason Hammel of Lula Cafe will host the third annual Logan Square Chef's Dinner to benefit Comfort Station Logan Square, a multidisciplinary arts space that provides free cultural programming for the surrounding community.
The Nov. 3 dinner starts at 6 p.m. and will feature “a dream team of local Epicurean talent” including Jared Wentworth of Longman & Eagle, Abraham Conlon of Fat Rice, Jared Van Camp of the upcoming Owen & Alchemy, several owners of Cellar Door Provisions, Matthias Merges of Yusho and Alfredo Nogueira of Analogue.
Much of Comfort Station's operating and programming expenses are covered through donations and sponsorships from local patrons and businesses, with the annual Chef's Dinner being the largest single source of funding that the organization receives each year, according to organizers.
Since 2010, Comfort Station has held monthly art exhibitions, weekly films and concerts, potlucks, workshops, and lectures, establishing itself as a micro-cultural center in the heart of Logan Square.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Tickets are $165 per person with all food, drinks, tax and tip included.
