Chef John des Rosiers is offering Chicagoans free field trips to his contemporary American restaurant Inovasi (28 E. Center Ave., Lake Bluff), beginning Fri 8/13 and continuing once every two months. Des Rosiers will offer ten people a limo ride to Inovasi, starting from a common point in the city and including caviar and Prosecco. Upon the guests’ arrival, des Rosiers will prepare a special multicourse menu complete with beer, wine, and cocktail pairings. To apply for a field trip, send des Rosiers an email explaining why you should be chosen. Applicants must live within the city limits.
