Get a taste of our local food scene with the return of Chicago Restaurant Week from Jan. 26 to Feb. 8. With more than 370 restaurants offering great dining deals, sneak away on a date at one of these places we’ve picked for every type of occasion.
For a romantic night
Dress to the nines at this trendy contemporary steakhouse. Their dinner prix-fixe menu serves main dishes such as wood-grilled bavette and roasted sea scallops. For dessert, choose their divine apple pie sundae filled with salted pecan streusel and warm caramel sauce.
For casual dining
If you’re looking for a more relaxed night out, eat your heart out at Bub City. This barbecue spot in River North features live country music and a seemingly neverending list of comfort food from fried chicken to sweet potato fluff.
For the daytime date
If you’re trying to stick to your New Year’s resolutions, stop by Beatrix Fulton Market for a bite to eat. While their lunch menu is only available Monday to Friday, you’ll want to sneak away from your busy day to try their Crispy Kale Salad.
For a family date
Bring your kids along to Chicago Restaurant Week! For a family-friendly brunch, stop by Summer House Santa Monica with West Coast vibes for their food inspiration. Kids can enjoy classics made with natural ingredients. In addition, a portion of proceeds from each kid’s meal is donated to No Kid Hungry.
