LINCOLN PARK — Now's your chance to meet celebrity chef Graham Elliot and get a copy of his new cookbook signed.
Known for being one of three judges on the popular FOX TV show "MasterChef" and an acclaimed restaurateur, Elliot will be at the New City Mariano's, 1500 N. Clybourn Ave., which debuted a few weeks ago, Thursday from 6 - 8 p.m., signing copies of his cookbook, "Cooking Like a Master Chef."
Folks who come out can buy the book, which was released Oct. 27, when they arrive at Mariano's for $30, excluding tax while supplies last.
Reservations are encouraged and can be made online.
Elliot recently told DNAinfo Chicago that he is planning to get back into the fine-dining game "with the idea of getting our three Michelin stars."
"It's finding that balance and making sure I can be there almost every night," he previously said. "I don't know if that means the TV thing goes away, but obviously the restaurant would be in Chicago and we'd absolutely make sure it's something we can do as perfectly as we can."
The Chicago-based chef is also making a stop at a Mariano's in suburban Oak Lawn, 1100 S. Cicero Ave., Sunday from 2 - 4 p.m. Reservations can be made online.
