Three Dots and a Dash

The James Beard Foundation Awards are awards that recognize top culinary industry professionals in the United States. Category winners include: writers, media, chefs, service, beverage, restaurant designers and culinary educators. It’s an exciting time for any food enthusiast to be in the host city, which has been Chicago since 2015. Many food and beverage-related events, pop-ups and demos are open to the public and take place several days before and after the ceremony. Next year the event will be held Monday May 7, 2018. 

Three Dots and a Dash is a Polynesian, Tiki-themed bar tucked in the middle of Chicago’s lively, bustling River North neighborhood. Carrying over 200 rums, their juices are made fresh each day with some ingredients shipped in from all over the world. The lighting is low with plenty of booth seating and a DJ who will remind you that you’re not on a beach but somewhere cool. Shareable, presentation-forward punch drinks are served in pineapples, skulls and treasure chests fly out of the bamboo bar with thatched roof bangs. I have yet to try the food, but I am determined to someday order the Pu Pu Platter.

One of the James Beard Awards beverage events was a “Tiki Takeover” held at Three Dots and a Dash. The guest bartenders were from San Francisco’s Trick Dog and Dirty Dick from Paris.
