Chicago Restaurant Week 2019

As the 12th annual Chicago Restaurant Week starts to wind down (last call is Thursday, February 7th), I encourage you to get out and try a new restaurant. With nearly 400 restaurants participating, you have many options!

The good news is you don’t have to break the bank to try out the place you’ve been eyeing for months. Participating restaurants are featuring prix fixe menus starting at $24 for brunch and lunch, and $36 and/or $48 for dinner (excluding tax, beverages, and gratuity).

I’m sharing my list of restaurants with you in case you need inspiration, or are overwhelmed with a list of 400! For each restaurant pick, I chose the dish that sold me on the menu. To help make your life super easy, I included links to the restaurant week menus as well. I’ve done everything for you except make reservations!

Now it’s up to you to scan the list and get those reservations made. I’d love to hear about your Restaurant Week dining experiences. Comment below and share!
