    FROM THE Fall 2016 ISSUE
     

Although they’ve been around for the past 20 years, Chicago’s Tex Mex emporium Burrito Beach is charting new waters with a foray into affordable catering for meetings and events. While its taco and nacho bars bank on the popularity of “build-your-own” stations, “beach boxes” update the old lunch staple with a choice of burrito, salad or quesadilla. Even breakfast gets a wakeup call with genius breakfast burritos and a breakfast taco bar. All ingredients, from the tortilla chips, salsa and guacamole to meats and seafood, are freshly prepared in-house. “Our wide array of combinations are a much-needed break from traditional business lunches and catering options [for] private parties,” says CEO/founder Gregory Schulson.

Orders can be placed within 24 hours and delivered free within a five-block radius of six locations in downtown Chicago and O’Hare International Airport. 

Entourage Events Group is determined to produce events that elevate brands, cultivate community and leave lasting impressions through the creation of unique and memorable event experiences. With a corporate office located in Minneapolis, Entourage Events Group can host more far-flung events in unique and historic venues.

 

California’s Sonoma County is dedicated to sustainability and rooted in the land that results in organic wine grapes, produce, artisan cheeses and meats and the bountiful Pacific Ocean that offers up freshly caught seafood. Sonoma County stretches from the Pacific Coast in the west to the Mayacamas Mountains in the east and is home to almost 60,000 acres of vineyards and more than 425 wineries.

Thanks to food halls, you no longer have to choose just one. Here are five food halls across the North- east that will satisfy everyone’s cravings (and possibly serve as your next meeting venue!).
