From July 16th to July 19th, more than 23,000 members of the food and beverage industry will flock to Chicago, Illinois for the 2016 Annual IFT Conference.
Chicago has been named one of the best food cities in the world by multiple chefs and media outlets. From "everyman" food like hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches and deep dish pizza to authentic Mexican in Pilsen to fine dining with Grant Achatz at Alinea, Chicago has it all. And don't forget about cocktails and coffee. The city is no slouch in these areas either.
So with all that eating and drinking you'll being doing while at the conference, we decided to make you a handy guide to print out or refer back to on your mobile phone.
