Lula Presents a Very Special Monday Night Farm Dinner

19k.jpgTickets are still available for Monday night's Farm Dinner at Lula (2537 N. Kedzie). While the event is something the Logan Square restaurant has been doing for over a decade, they are bringing on some very exciting talent for this next occasion.

"Top Chef" and Aria alum Beverly Kim and husband John Clark, who briefly took over (and closed) Bonsoiree last fall, along with some out-of-towners -- Sarah and Evan Rich of San Francisco's Rich Table -- will be contributing "surprise" canapes in addition to parts of the three-course meal (the entree is roast chicken with miso, rutabaga and bacon). Tickets $45 ($25 for wine pairings). Call call 773-489-9554 to reserve.
