“All we ever needed was a seat at the table” – Jeff Osuji


Chicago is home to some of the culture’s best curators, tastemakers, skylines, and food! Entrée proved the latter with its new specialty menu, “Jerkhouse,” during the “Everybody Eats” stop in Chi-town.

Eventnoire’s CEO and Co-Founder Jeff Osuji hosted the event in partnership with Entrée’s CEO & Co-Owner, Jon Bell, which led to “Jerkhouse.” Both visionaries are pioneers in their respective fields. Osuji in the world of tech and event ticketing, and Bell as a gourmet restauranter.

Bell shared the backstory of “Jerkhouse” as he welcomed the event’s guests. Each attentively listened as he embarked on his Jamaican descent, inspiring the three-course meal. Bell’s team served the delicious cuisine betwixt his speech. Smoked jerk chicken, white cheddar mac n cheese, a perfectly shaved brussels and broccoli salad alongside hushpuppies fried to perfection with a specialty pimento spread were met with generous smiles and open arms.
