Kouzina Food and Wine Fest at the Hellenic Museum

All things Greek during the Kouzina food festival


Dine-around events seem to take place every week in Chicago and oftentimes they’re all pretty similar. But Kouzina, happening November 5th at the National Hellenic Museum (333 S. Halsted), is all about the Greek. Set in the heart of Greektown, Kouzina brings together a host of chefs set up at tasting stations for two hours of modern takes on Mediterranean delights. Then settle in for a dessert lounge and premium wine tasting to keep the night going.

During the night, you’ll get to dine on delicious bites from chefs like David Schneider (Taxim), Jimmy Bannos, Sr. (Heaven on Seven), George Bournas (Psistaria Greek Taverna) and Louie Alexakis (Avli Estiatorio) while you explore the museum, including its Athens Street Art exhibit and learn all about Greek culture and heritage. Tickets cost $100 and you can grab yours here.
