Food Lovers and deal seekers can rejoice right along-side me because Chicago Restaurant Week is March 25 – April 10, 2022. It’s right around the corner and this year they have more than 50 suburban restaurants providing some of the best deals around!

This is the 15th annual restaurant week featuring special prix fixe menus starting at $25 – $55 for brunch, lunch and dinner options along with upgraded dinner experiences (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity).

There are usually plenty of suburban options on the list to choose from and this year should be no different, there shouldn’t be any shortage of date nights being planned. So checkout Choose Chicago for the updates.

Be Mindful: As things continue to change during this time it’s definitely a good idea to verify hours of operation, closures, prices and any requirements for guests. Thank You!

Restaurant Week in the Chicago Suburbs

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.
