Restaurant Week in Chicago is one of our favorite times of the year! Here you can get the details on where to dine out in Chicago during restaurant week including our recommendations.
For 15 years Chicago restaurants have celebrated Restaurant Week by offering prix fixe menus. It takes place for just over 2 weeks across the city and in the suburbs. You’ll find multi-course meals are $25 for brunch or lunch, and $42 and/or $55 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax, gratuity, and delivery fees).
Tomorrow kicks off with First Bites at the Field Museum. This year’s celebrity chef is Darnell Reed of Luella’s Southern Kitchen in Lincoln Square and benefits Kitchen Possible and the James Beard Scholarship Foundation. Restaurant Week is a great way to get out and explore new cuisines, neighborhoods that are new to you and enjoy a quiet dinner or a night out with friends. It runs January 20 – February 5th.
