About Les Gourmets of Chicago

Les Gourmets of Chicago is a fine dining & wine appreciation club for men.


We meet for dinners seven times a year, from September through June. Each dinner is hosted at a Chicago area restaurant. Working with the chefs, we design a custom multi-course menu to highlight the unique talents of the kitchen team.


The restaurants we select run the gamut; from those widely recognized as among the best in Chicago, to undiscovered “hole-in-the-wall” neighborhood restaurants. The common thread is excellent food.


The menus are paired with wines from the club’s extensive private cellar. We have been collecting wine for nearly 60 years. So, the pairings presented at our dinners are often wines available today only from private collections or on the auction market.


Membership in the group is by invitation. The best way to learn more is to experience one of our dinners. Click below to request an invitation to an upcoming dinner as our guest.
