BDP’s ticketed Urban Farm Dinners attract people from near and far looking for a unique culinary experience. During the summer and warmer fall evenings, the events are held in the middle of our beautiful urban farm, but in the cooler months we move indoors to our transformed cafe with plenty of space for the number of tickets we sell. Each night's four-course menu showcases BDP’s daily harvest and commitment to local sourcing, and all beverages are included!
The evening begins at 5:30 with appetizers and cocktails, followed by a salad course, main course and seasonal dessert. The dinner concludes at 8:30.
Big Delicious Planet is a hidden gem in the industrial corridor of Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. A pioneer in Chicago’s sustainable dining scene, BDP has evolved from a backstage rock & roll caterer founded in 1994 to a certified green urban farm-to-table operation. Owner Heidi Moorman Coudal transformed three adjacent vacant lots into a lush farm with 72 raised beds of organic vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, and three beehives. In 2013 BDP became the first caterer in the country to earn 4-Star Certified Green Restaurant status from the Green Restaurant Association, and still holds the title of “Greenest Caterer in America.”
