BEST TEAM BUILDING EVENT EVER! ...and Chef Andy was the reason it exceeded expectations. If you are looking for a place to get together, have a cocktail/soda, talk and bond as a team, learn some laid back cooking technique, and have an event that the whole group is talking about afterwards, THIS SHOUD BE YOUR CHOICE! We had a group of 13 for a corporate team building event, at the Wicker Park Inn venue (which is also ADORABLE!), a quick 15 min Uber from downtown. Our team did the Spanish Paella menu, but honestly I am not sure the menu choice matters much, as the experience of being there and entertainment/conversation/personality Chef Andy provides makes the whole event. Easy platform for communication, Chef Andy is incredibly responsive, even tailored our menu to dietary needs. 110% recommended.
