When it’s the dead of winter in Chicago (read Chiberia!) we may not be able to avoid snow and ice, but we can sure avoid those darn winter doldrums! One of our favorite ways to dodge the doldrums is to eat our way through all the rich & diverse cuisine this cold, but culinary, city has to offer. And lucky for us all, Choose Chicago has been indulging our foodie ways for the last 7 years, and this year will be no different! The 8th annual Chicago Restaurant Week kicks off January 30 and will keep our stomachs satisfied and smiling until February 12.
Chicago Restaurant Week is an annual culinary celebration that allows foodies from all corners of the city,state,country & globe to come and enjoy special prix fixe menus from over 250 participating Chicago restaurants. The special prix fixe menus start at $22 for lunch and $33 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). To participate in these 14 delectable days, all you have to do is make a reservation.
To see the list of all participating restaurants or to make reservations during Restaurant Week, stop by: EatItUpChicago.com. All participating restaurants should provide you with their special Restaurant Week Menu; if the menu is not provided upon seating, please feel comfortable to request the special menu.
Those more nervous about committing to a prix fixe menu should check out the First Bites Bash on Thursday, January 29 at Union Station in Chicago, from 5:30PM-8:30PM. First Bites Bash is the official kick-off event for Chicago Restaurant Week, where you will enjoy savory and sweet tastings from over 50 of Chicago’s most celebrated chefs and restaurants. Restaurateur & master sommelier, Alpana Singh will host this year’s event, from which a portion of the proceeds will benefit Inspiration Corporation.
