Chicago Dining Out Meetup (CDO) Pages

Hello Dining Enthusiasts!

My name is JD, and I've been running a dining group (JD's Ethnic Dining Adventures - ) since 2001. We have been going to the best restaurants in the Chicagoland area once a month. Since 2004, I have been asking my friends on Meetup to join us.

Some examples of restaurants we've been to are:
Mas - Neuvo Latino - Chicago
Mount Everest - Nepalese - Evanston
Pegasus - Greek - Chicago
Chicago Brauhaus - German - Chicago
Paprikash - Hungarian - Chicago
Tsukasa - Japanese (Teppenaki) - Vernon Hills
Bohemian Crystal - Czech - Westmont
Russian Tea Time - Russian - Chicago
Vee Vee's">Vee's - Nigerian - Chicago
Pappadeaux - Cajun - Arlington Heights
Meson Sabika - Spanish - Naperville
Monasteros - Sicilian - Chicago
Jolly Inn - Polish - Chicago

The typical dinner is a packaged family style dinner or buffet.

Typical costs run from $13 to $40 (including tax & tip). Drinks are CASH BAR (buy your own) or BYOB on occasion.

To see more on past dinners go to:
JDFUN Events (Since 2007)
JDFUN Dining Events (2006)
JDFUN Dining Events (2005)
JDFUN Dining Events (2004)
JDFUN Dining Events (2003)
JDFUN Dining Events (2002)
JDFUN Dining Events (2001)

We also organize smaller outings where order off the menu to explore new restaurants or smaller restaurants.

We are always looking for members to host dinners. It's easy to do. The more events the better! Please contact JD if you would be interested.

If you have any questions, contact me at

Bon Appetit!
