Pearl’s Place Dinner

Location: 8th Street Entrance (Lobby)

Community Dinners
Chicago, Community Engagement

It might pique your curiosity to know that Pearl’s Place has deep culinary ties with the Obama Foundation, but the restaurant’s history is even more interesting. Serving the Bronzeville community and Chicagoland for more than 30 years, owner Darrell Green hires and promotes members of the community. You’ll learn about how the artwork outside of the building pays tribute to Bronzeville talent, and how the restaurant acts as a gallery to celebrate local artists.

Note: Pearl’s Place Restaurant is not a gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian establishment. Nuts, shellfish and other allergens may be present in any items.

Menu: Specialized by the chef on the night of the dinner, the Soul Food Favorites buffet will include food like Fried Chicken, Turkey, Pork Chops, Dressing, Macaroni and Cheese, Red Beans and Rice, Collard Greens

To register for this dinner, please email or stop by the Upswell registration desk.
