Event Description

If you previously joined us at Couscous, you'll be back. Couscous Restaurant (http://www.couscouschicago.com/) on Taylor Street has been making fantastic Mediterranean food for over 20 years. Featuring "Flavors of the Maghreb" (Northwest Africa) this is Ken's favorite Mediterranean hangout. Pardon me for keeping Couscous Restaurant a family secret.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE GIVING A FIRM COMMITMENT TO THE RESTAURANT AND IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL YOUR RSVP ON OR BEFORE SEPTEMBER 12TH, OR ARE A NO-SHOW, YOU WILL BE COMMITTED TO PAYING FOR YOUR RESERVATION.

Couscous Restaurant is in Chicago's UIC - Little Italy neighborhood on West Taylor Street and has been offering fine Mediterranean Cuisine since 2000. The owner, Joe Hammami, is from Palestine and his wife Nabila is from Tunisia, both contributing to tasty Mediterranean standards accented with flavors of the Maghreb. We'll enjoy flavorful healthy Mediterranean dishes, including hummos, falafel, signature Curry Vegetables served with Couscous, and more. Yes, it is all vegan. All for the price of $15 CASH at the door. TAX AND TIP are INCLUDED! CASH ONLY! It's BYOB.
