13-Course Latin Tasting Experience with Chef Norman Fenton of WILD, Tulum and Chicago's Cariño
Cariño, a new Latin project from Detroit-based Chef Norman Fenton, is promising to be one of Chicago’s most anticipated fall restaurant openings. Lucky for us, we’re hyped to be getting an exclusive sneak peek.
With an immaculate résumé working alongside a succession of modern greats; think über-trendy Grant Achatz’s ‘The Aviary’ and fine dining ‘Schwa’, where Norman rose the ranks to Chef de Cuisine, earning a Michelin star. Pushing boundaries, Norman also opened smash hit, WILD Tulum in 2019, where he still reigns as executive chef.
Squeezing in a trip “home” to preview Cariño before it opens, plan on an impossibly delicious Latin-inspired tasting menu playing with textures and temperatures, sprinkled with influences from Norman’s travels from around the world.
