Chicago Restaurant Week Recommendations

Chicago Restaurant Week 2018 runs January 26th through February 8th. Prime reservations book quickly, so start thinking about where you plan to dine this year and celebrate two weeks of dining deals.

Over 370 restaurants take part (including 115 new participants for 2018!), enabling you to get a taste of Chicago’s restaurant scene. Between the neighborhood favorites and downtown hotspots, you can also feast on delicious multi-course menus all across the city and suburbs.

The 11th annual culinary celebration features special prix fixe menus starting at $22 for brunch or lunch, and $33 and/or $44 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). I always love a deal, and aim to dine at what would otherwise be the more expensive restaurants.
