Taste of Wilmette & Kenilworth

The 2016 Taste of Wilmette & Kenilworth gathered local business owners and residents for delicious samplings on October 19 at the Kenilworth Assembly Hall. The evening was a joint effort between the Wilmette/Kenilworth Chamber of Commerce, the Kenilworth Park District and the New Trier Educational Foundation–the 2016 beneficiary–receiving a portion of the event proceeds.

The Private Bank sponsored the evening which drew nearly 200 guests. Many local restaurants participated to provide a wide variety of sweet and savory offerings. Other local merchants served craft beers and fine wines, creating some uniquely wonderful pairings.

West is a Wilmette resident and has attended a number of tasting events hosted by the Chamber in the past. The feedback he received from attendees and participating merchants he spoke to was consistent: This year’s “Taste” was very successful. According to West, this success enhanced its benefit to the Foundation.
