Taste of Chicago application for restaurants arrives

February 24, 2012 2:16:07 PM PST
Friday is the application deadline for restaurants taking part in this year's Taste of Chicago.

This year the Taste is scheduled to run from July 11-15.

The shortened Taste appears to be getting a lackluster response from area restaurants. The Chicago Sun Times reports only 40 restaurants applied for the entire festival while 15 applied for just one day.
