Join Logan Square Kitchen in making all food in our city safer for everyone.  Please sign our petition and energetically send along to everyone you know.  This is for anyone with a stomach.

Yes, you can choose to remain anonymous. We're reaching for 23,000 signatures, one for every food business in Chicago.  LSK has been over-inspected, while many unsafe facilities go years without an inspection.  We have no food business leaders in the Health Department in Chicago, and we need good ones now to  be sure the resources we have, stretched very thin, are put to the best use.

We're also announcing PUBLIC HEALTH INSPECTION PARTIES here at LSK.  Whenever we're going to have an inspection, we'll throw our doors open. Building a restaurant?  Come see an inspection.  Thinking of starting a business here? Come see how folks get licensed.  Member of the media? PLEASE, come and help us!  Just plain interested? Need a coffee? We don't care why you visit, just come on down!

At your service during the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival,
Saturday/Sunday, July 24-25, 2010

Logan Square Kitchen presents Chicago’s First Pop-Up Restaurants – two themes , for two days only.  Featuring Chef Jason Hammel of Lula and Nightwood (in partnership with Intelligentsia) and Chef Bill Kim of Urban Belly and Belly Shack.

Chef Bill Kim:   “A Pop-up restaurant gives me the freedom to experiment for a short time and get instantaneous feedback—it’s the freedom that makes it so appealing.  Like test driving a great car.”

Chef Jason Hammel:  “Being a chef is all about repetition, about trying to do something again and again in just the same way.  The Pop Up gives us the freedom to take chances, to play, to just have fun doing what we love. It's like wearing a costume and going undercover-- Logan Square has never seen us like this before.”

During the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Fest, Chefs will present festival food—simple and fun.   Quick counter service will be cash only.  There will be limited seating, as food will be designed to travel,  allowing folks to get back to music stages and art galleries.

Each chef’s pop-up will have an overall theme.  Chef Bill Kim’s is a Summer Picnic, while Chef Jason Hammel and Intelligentsia are presenting Coffee & Doughnuts.
The details of each theme and menu will be released via Logan Square Kitchen on Facebook and Twitter at logansqkitchen.
