Taste vendors cutting back, raising prices

Taste of Chicago fans may find their favorite foods cost more this year -- or they may not find them at all. Crain's Chicago Business reports the economy is forcing some restaurants to increase prices or change menus.

For example, perennial favorite Robinson's Number One Ribs has dropped baby-back ribs from its taste menu because it's too expensive to offer. Robinson's will feature a pulled-pork sandwich for the first time instead.

Organizers require items to sell for between 50 cents and $5.
