Chow Down and Do Good

In a past post on this blog, I reported about a lunch with my friend, Chef Alan Lake, at Taste of Brazil on Oak Park Ave.

Since then, Lake has become chef at Chief O’Neill’s in Chicago, and he’s turning out some truly innovative food in the Irish culinary tradition. In the process, he’s helping some needy kids get fed.

On Thursday, March 8th, at Chief O’Neill’s (3471 N. Elston), 25% of all dinner purchases will go to help AYS, an after-school mentoring program that gives kids a safe-haven in the afternoon…and some food.

As reported previously, Lake is a percussionist in the band Casa de  Soul, which also features Oak Parker Juan Cabrales. As part of his contribution to AYS, Lake gives kids percussion lessons so that after they eat, they can make a little noise.

This is a good cause, and if you find yourself getting in the mood for some Irish food (‘tis the season), then you definitely should try the haute Hibernian chow at Chief O’Neill’s – and if you eat there on March 8th, you’ll be doing good for more than just your tummy.
