It's Time to Start Cooking

To our loyal cooking community, both locations of The Chopping Block will be closed from March 16 through March 30 to comply with the state of Illinois’ mandate to shut down restaurants and bars during this COVID-19 crisis.

We applaud this decision and feel it will support the city of Chicago in its efforts to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As employers, employees, patrons and citizens come together in our efforts, we can more decisively and quickly combat this pandemic. We are very optimistic that this step by Governor Pritzker will assist us in resuming business as usual at a quicker rate.

It's an uncertain time in our world, but we're certain the answer lies in your kitchen. Cook for yourself. Cook for your family. Continue to support your local restaurants by ordering take out when possible. Dining at a Distance has put together this list of restaurants and their offerings. 

One way you can help support our business while we are shut down is to purchase a gift card. Our gift cards are good toward classes, events and retail, and they never expire. Gift card purchases will be critical in helping small businesses stay afloat during this shutdown.

It's always been our mission to "get you cooking." While we cannot remain open to help you during this critical time, know that we are always here for you. Reach out to us via email, our website or social media channels with your cooking questions. Let's return to the kitchen during this uncertain time, and cook!  

Stay healthy and safe as we all navigate through this unprecedented time together. As things are changing constantly, we'll use this page to provide updates to you.
