Chicago restaurants are offering grill kits for Memorial Day weekend
Fire up the grill and enjoy burgers, ribs, chicken and sausages supplied by restaurants throughout the city. The weekend when thousands of grills come out of hibernation is almost upon us, but you don’t have to head to the grocery store to find something to cook outdoors. Many Chicago restaurants are offering Memorial Day grilling packages ahead of the three-day weekend, assembling choice cuts of meat (the same ones they typically serve) alongside a selection of tasty side dishes and desserts. Whether you want to cook a few cheeseburgers or try something more adventurous like Argentinian parrillada or kalbi-style short ribs, we’ve found some of the best spots to snag supplies for your holiday weekend barbecue.
Sure, you could get some ground beef and craft your own burger this weekend, but some things are best left to the patty pros. M Burger’s location at 161 E Huron is selling a Memorial Day Burger Kit ($32) with enough uncooked patties, buns, chips and condiments (including M Sauce) for four people. If you want to make yours a double, you can snag extra patties for $3 each. Order it from: Tock (pick up May 22–25)

Lincoln Park French bistro Mon Ami Gabi lets you bring home a marinated steak with maitre d butter, broccolini and asparagus to grill, along with Caesar salad and strawberries briand for dessert ($50 for two people, $100 for four people). Orders must be placed by Thursday, May 21 at 1pm. Order it from: Tock (pick up May 24)
