Buen Provecho! Highlights Pilsen Dining

2009-09_buen_provecho.jpg More people are moving south to Pilsen and Bridgeport in search of cheap housing and rents, and that's led to a slow but steady increase in dining options for our part of town; we'll have a review of Nana Friday. 18th Street in Pilsen has even seen some diversity with the recent openings of Ristorante al Teatro and Ciao Amore, and Honky Tonk BBQ before that.

The 18th Street Development Corporation (they put together Pilsen's Mole Fest in spring) has put together a neighborhood dining and walking tour set for next Wednesday. From 5:30-9:30 p.m. Buen Provecho! Pilsen will feature 25 participating restaurants, bakeries and cafes offering samples that best represent their respective places of business while showing off why 18th Street is one of the best dining destinations in the city. Tickets are limited due to the demand. The cost of the tour is $25; full list and tickets available here.
