He is paying homage to the food traditions of Chicago, the Midwest, and Great Lakes Region. Jeremy has gained acclaim for being an early pioneer in Chicago's underground dining scene with his pop-up event series Tuesday Night Dinner. His efforts were recognized by Zagat Guide when he was inducted into their 30 Under 30 class in 2014. In 2017, Jeremy received a Michelin Bib Gourmand for his Basque-inspired menu as Executive Chef of mfk in Chicago's East Lakeview neighborhood. In 2018, Jeremy relocated to Copenhagen to do a residency at the world-renowned Noma restaurant during their plant kingdom season. While at Noma, Jeremy spent his time there acquiring new skills in the kitchen, a glossary of knowledge about wild plants, as well as numerous hours spent assisting the fermentation lab. Most recently Jeremy has taken it upon himself to travel the remote regions of the Great Lakes basin to seek out the forgotten food traditions passed down for generations." 

Sweet Home 

"Sweet Home is a new restaurant soon to open by Chef Jeremy Leven. Sweet Home will focus on simple preparations of exceptional ingredients from the Midwest and Great Lakes region. Sweet Home will offer creative flavorful takes on classic preparations, while maintaining a relaxed and comfortable environment for guests.

Sweet Home's menu draws inspiration from cultivated and wild food sources of the Great Lakes region, and the heritage of the people who call these places home. A fondness for classic preparations, robust local ingredients, and an affinity for the taste of the wilderness will be highlighted at Sweet Home. Ingredients such as wild mushrooms from the Northwoods, ancient heritage pork breeds from the Oak Savannas, wild rice from Minnesota, various types of flint and sweet corns and grains, seasonal vegetables, wild edibles, smoked and fresh fish from Lake Superior, shellfish from the St. Lawrence waterways, and cave-aged cheese from Wisconsin will all find their way onto the menu."

The giftLIT salons happen several times a year at Community Tavern. A salon has historically been defined as “a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of participants through conversation.”  What does that mean to the Gift?  It means we round up a diverse group of writers and performers--some experienced, some rookies, some comedians, some poets.  We give them all the same prompt and ask them to tell their stories while we drink good wine and eat good food.  Both Community and the Gift believe that these story-sharing experiences create meaningful connections among individuals and within our community.
