Two wrongs dont make a right, but five Kims and one Lee definitely do. Were psyched to spill the details on the coolest or, really, hottest event of the summer: The Ultimate Korean BBQ Block Party (also a Chicago Food Bowl event)!
From noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11, join our own Bill Kim and five of his Korean friends who happen to be top chefs Parachutes Beverly Kim, Jennifer Kim of Passerotto, Edward Kim of Mott St., Won Kim of Kimski and the lone Lee from Louisville, Edward Lee (610 Magnolia, Milkwood, Whiskey Dry, Succotash) as they fire up their renditions of Korean barbecue on the bellyQ patio.
