True Food Kitchen Chicago, a health-driven restaurant co-founded by restaurateur Sam Fox and integrative medicine expert Dr. Andrew Weil, opened in Chicago’s River North neighborhood in November with a menu rooted in anti-inflammatory foods and seasonal dishes. Each has simple preparation with recognizable, nutrient-rich ingredients that support health and well-being—which is becoming more and more important in meetings and events with the increase in health-conscious attendees.

The 7,625-square-foot restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner (and brunch on the weekends), and features menu options like shiitake lettuce cups, beet bruschetta, sustainable sea bass, as well as a range of kombuchas, tonics and teas. Though catering is not available at this time, takeout is still an option. 

On March 6, nearly 200 meeting planners, event producers, experiential design experts and vendor partners gathered at Loyola University Chicago’s Damen Student Center to talk cutting edge tech trends, explore new educational topics and connect with friends old and new.
