Startup showcase attendees will enjoy the following food & beverage
THE MAIN STOP FOR HIGH QUALITY MEXICAN STREET FOOD IN EVANSTON
We started with a full bay window to let the breeze flow through the restaurant on a sunny day or to just let light bathe in on those colder winter days. Pair this with some chicken tacos, made with tortillas that are made in house and some of the best rated margaritas in Evanston, and you've got La Principal. Stop by so we can treat you to an amazing experience. After all, La Principal translates to “The Main,” so we want to live up to our name!
Welcome to Koi, located in the heart of Evanston’s bustling downtown on Davis Street. We offer fresh sushi, authentic Chinese cuisines from 8 different regions of China and Dim Sum Brunch every weekend. The perfect setting for date night, or just catching up with friends or sharing a family-style meal with the ones you love.
Voted “Best Chinese Food, Suburbs” by Better Magazine, 2019
Sketchbook was founded by two home brewers, Cesar Marron and Shawn Decker, who were passionate about starting a microbrewery right in the thick of their remarkable hometown. We brew a wide range of historical and adventurous beer styles. Our work is driven by a love of quality in food and beer, a commitment to sustainable local production, and a lot of DIY geeky-ness.
We make wine easy. Meta Wine is a new kind of wine company. Licensed as a winery, we produce amazing wines with our global network of producer partners. We are not married to a particular location or wine varietal; and we bring great wine to market efficiently, emphasizing the wine itself without the burden of being an over-packaged brand, overloaded with marketing costs.
