Chicago Restaurant Week
Food Lovers and deal seekers can rejoice right along-side me because Chicago Restaurant Week is Jan. 25 through Feb. 7, 2019. Now EXTENDED through Feb. 12th. It’s right around the corner and this year they have 45 suburban restaurants providing some of the best deals around!
This is the 12th annual restaurant week featuring special prix fixe menus starting at $24 for brunch and lunch options along with $36 dinner and $48 upgraded dinner experiences (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity).
With so many suburban options on the list to choose from this year, there shouldn’t be any shortage of date nights being planned. Maybe even an early Valentine’s Day dinner to beat the crowd.
Restaurant Week Menus
After looking at all the menus, I did come across several vegetarian and gluten free options, which is a great thing for foodies with special diet needs. For the rest of us there were quite a few restaurants featuring Short Ribs, Berkshire Pork, Filet, Lobster and plenty of Pasta. I’m hungry just thinking of it all.
If Chicago Restaurant Week isn’t your thing, there are plenty of Chicago Suburbs doing their own Restaurant Week events. Check these out.
