Event description


Big Delicious Planet takes their Urban Farm Dinner Series indoors for a four-course "Co-op Urban Farm Dinner" at The Roof Crop on Friday, March, 1, 2019.

This four-course family-style dinner highlights Big Delicious Planet's creative menus and commitment to sustainable urban agriculture. Each of BDP's Urban Farm Dinners is curated by a talented events and culinary team, with menus prepared by BDP's Executive Chef Tom Bronny. The dinner incorporates herbs, micros and edible flowers that both Big Delicious Planet and The Roof Crop are growing indoors, and honey sourced from their own beehives! Vegetables and meat are sourced from many local farms. A very fun dining experience in middle of winter!

The evening begins in The Roof Crop's loft with a variety of appetizers and drinks, including a signature honey infused Maker's Mark cocktail (in celebration of the Beam Suntory hive at The Roof Crop) and a selection of organic and biodynamic wines. Around 7:00pm guests will be seated to beautiful salad course, and we'll give a brief introduction to Big Delicious Planet, Illinois' only 4-Star Certified Green Restaurant, and The Roof Crop, Chicago's most impressive rooftop farm. Next comes a delicious family-style dinner followed by a fun dessert!

We hope you'll join us!
