May 31, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The menu boasts 35 diverse restaurants, which include Chicago favorites as well as some new additions. Cuisines include African, American, Caribbean, Chinese, German, Indian, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese and more.

Newcomers like Bombay Spice Grill & Wine, French Market favorite Flip Crepes, Lao Ma La Chinese by acclaimed Chef Tony Hu, and Southern-inspired Wishbone Restaurant will join Taste of Chicago classics like Connie's Pizza and Gold Coast Dogs.

All vendors will showcase signature menu items, as well as the popular "Taste Of" portions priced at $2.50 or less, allowing guests the opportunity to sample a greater variety of items. The city says many restaurants will include Humana Healthier Choice selections for those seeking lighter options.
