Top Chef: Downtown is Downtown Iowa City’s most popular and beloved annual culinary event. Downtown and Northside Marketplace restaurants prepare signature dishes from some of the area’s favorite restaurants, while area mixologists craft exquisite cocktails. This year, we are adding a barista category to the menu to represent downtown coffee shops! The title “Top Chef” is awarded by a panel of culinary experts and all guests can weigh in to determine the People’s Choice winner!
