Border Oak Cafe is the next leg of the journey for the team that brought you Tuesday Night Dinner underground supper club. For the past three and a half years, Tuesday Night Dinner (TND) has hosted communal pop-up food events at a multitude of locations all across Chicago. A historic mansion, underground art lofts, local restaurants, and a secret convent garden are just a handful of places we have hosted our events. By drawing inspiration from our city’s food history and culture, we have crafted meals that attempt to pay homage to the spirit of community and approachable deliciousness. Pulling from this same spirit as TND, Border Oak will be our first attempt at a brick and mortar establishment. While TND has focused on the cuisine of the city, Border Oak will look outwards to the Midwest and the greater American Midlands for inspiration. We will focus on delicious and accessible food, with particular attention paid to quality of ingredients, precision of technique, and grounding in the food traditions from the city, the Midwest, and the greater American midlands.. We will create an atmosphere that is welcoming, comfortable, and community minded with the goal of creating the most enjoyable experience possible for our guests.
