Delicious DIRT. Get Dosed: Food and Fashion, One Sunday a Month

You’ve spent many a Sunday trekking from Bucktown to Chinatown, Andersonville to the Gold Coast, and back again, in order to soak up everything Chicago has to offer. Life would be easier if there were just one stop.  CLICK PHOTOS TO ENLARGE

Dose Market is just that: The new food and fashion market takes place one Sunday a month at the River East Art Center. Heather Sperling (Chicago Editor, Tasting Table) and Emily Fiffer (DailyCandy Chicago Editor) helm the food end; April Francis (the Haute Closet) and Jessica Herman (Associate Shopping Editor, Time Out Chicago) add a healthy dose of fashion and design to the mix. The foursome’s goal is simple: to expose Chicagoans to the creativity that makes this city tick – and put Chicago on the map, once and for all.

Fish Bar caught a taste for chilled Lobster Gazpacho with tomato, cucumber and a whisper of spice, and let go Lobster Bisque until the leaves turn rust and scarlet.  Summer ceviches are made with tomato, jicama, Serrano chile, avocado, and lime; and tartares are made with cucumber, red onion, cayenne and dill.  Fish Bar also reeled in a new Tuna salad with avocado, celery and capers.  Fish Bar’s black board specials will continue to change often based on sustainability reports, weather conditions and mood rings.
