Door Open Dishes

[I] make no pretense of being the last word on the subject of autistic children. …more appropriate to call it one of the first words.

A Taste of Rimland at Nico Osteria!

Rimland has partnered with two fantastic Chicago organizations to celebrate the culinary gifts of one of our clients. Doors Open Dishes is a unique initiative that pairs individuals with disabilities with chefs at local restaurants across Chicago. Gold Coast standout Nico Osteria is one of Chicago’s premiere Italian restaurants. Doors Open Dishes engaged Nico Osteria’s chef de cuisine, Bill Montage, to meet and work with Rimland client and cooking enthusiast Carrissia to create a dish inspired by Carrissia’s favorite ingredients and flavors. The experience was captured in this video and the dish they created is currently on the menu at Nico Osteria! Throughout the month of November, visit Nico Osteria during lunchtime hours to taste the delicious dish that Chef Bill and Carrissia have created while supporting adults with autism. Nico Osteria will be donating proceeds from sales of the dish to Rimland! Are you hungry yet? We’ll see you in November at Nico Osteria!
