Proposed Menu Items:  Please tell us your proposed menu items.  Applicants must submit a list of 1 to 3 main menu items and 1 of the items must be a "signature item".  (A "signature item" must be an item for which the establishment is known or a specialty item consistent with the character of your establishment.)  Additionally, applicant must submit 1 or 2 "Taste of" items.   Please be sure to read all of the details of this section in the Food Vendor Information guide posted on the Taste of Chicago website.

Please keep in mind that Taste of Chicago is designed for people to enjoy a variety of food from many vendors.  The word "Taste" suggests a sampling and not a full entree service size.  We ask that you create your menu portions and pricing for your main menu items to meet this standard.

Prices must be in multiples of .50 and "Taste Of" items cannot be priced higher than $3.00.

* 20. If your proposed menu above includes (3) Main menu items and (2) "Taste of" items, you may request a fourth Main menu item.  Note:  A fourth Main menu item will be at the discretion of event management. 

* 21. A photograph or rough design idea or plan of your proposed booth facade (for 5-Day applicants) or a photograph of your Food Truck (for Food Truck applicants).  Note:  Nothing is required here for those applying only as a Pop-Up Food Vendor.
