Model and actress Tara Reid made an appearance at Chicago Prime Italian located at 1370 Bank Dr. in Schaumburg on Thursday, November 19, 2015. Reid was in town for the Days of the Dead horror convention at the Chicago Schaumburg Marriot where she was taking photos with fans Nov. 20-22, 2015.
The Sharknado and American Pie actress is of Irish, Italian, French, Hungarian, and English descent and a self-proclaimed “foodie” with a love of Italian cuisine. Reid dined on Chicken Prosciutto with sautéed chicken breasts, onion, mushrooms, prosciutto, marsala cream sauce and angel hair pasta with butter along with the Pasta Fagiole Soup with white beans, pancetta and ditalini pasta.
