Our founder, Pete, was 17 when he got into this business. Starting as a fishmonger at Burhops Seafood, he worked his way through every imaginable position you can have in the industry before founding Chicago Game & Gourmet in 1996. 

He’s a life-long food lover and expert of all things meat, poultry, and seafood, and has dedicated himself to finding the absolute best quality. Not just in the United States, but across the globe.

So if you see something on our website, it’s because we stand by it, and serve it in our own home. Because the whole point of Chicago Game and Gourmet is to share the unbelievably delicious, sometimes rare ingredients and products we’ve come to love, so you can share them with your family and friends.

We’re always happy to have a chat on the phone about what you’re looking for, or answer questions you may have. And if you’re up for a face to face conversation, we always welcome guests at our shop located at 700 W. Root St, in Chicago.
