Tour the Design Trends

Registration is now available for the fourth annual Tour the Design Trends, an invitation-only, behind-the-scenes tour hosted by restaurant development + design magazine of some of the hottest — and most beautiful — new restaurants in Chicago. 

This year's event will take place on Monday, June 10. The Tour kicks off with a breakfast and keynote discussion about the latest trends in the industry. From there, a trolley tour will take attendees around Chicago to undisclosed restaurants. We find the mystery of not knowing exactly where we were going enhances the anticipation level. At each location, attendees were taken on a guided tour of the entire restaurant with various members of the team – from designers, architects, consultants or restaurant owners. To get a better sense of the Tour, check out the images and descriptions of each location from 2018, 2017 and 2016.
