Get ready to bring your appetite to the Windy City. There’s no better way to experience the tasty Chicago dining scene than during the annual Chicago Restaurant Week from January 22 to February 4. This foodie favorite is now in its ninth year, and 2016 promises to be bigger and better than ever before. This year, a record number of eateries are participating with over 350 dining destinations (including over 50 brand new restaurants). Prix Fixe menus begin at $22 for lunch and $33/$44 for dinner.
Right near our River North hotel, you can find great deals during lunch and dinner at Rainforest Café with entrees including a flat-iron steak combo and an Amazon feast with chicken and ribs. RPM Steak around the corner is also serving up a nice selection of prime meats. For a Mexican meal you won’t soon forget, head to Frontera Grill just two blocks away. Dine on delectable dishes like turkey enchiladas, grilled fish with black garlic, and Oaxacan-style carne asada.
Most of the multi-course menus include a choice of appetizer, entrée, and dessert, and you’ll find every type of cuisine from Korean and Italian to New American and French. You can see the full list of restaurants on the Choose Chicago website. Reservations are highly recommended. Drinks, tax, and gratuities are not included.
