Chicago’s 12th annual Restaurant week began January 25th and will be happening all across Chicago until February 7th. If you’ve always wanted to try different restaurants around the city, then this is your time to shine! With over dozens of restaurants participating there is an endless amount of food to consume from now until then! Here…

JOE’S SEAFOOD, PRIME STEAK & STONE CRAB: LUNCH $24, DINNER $48

You won’t always get a meal here for under $48, so make the most of it while you can! Joe’s Seafood is possibly some of the best in the city, and their restaurant week menu will prove just that. Whether you’re in the mood for a beautiful filet mignon or a nice Alaskan King Crab, this is the place to go. Don’t forget to try their famous stone crab; so good you don’t even need butter. We recommend finishing the night off with some of their delicious key lime pie! With the perfect balance of creamy and citrus flavors you’ll be sure to leave full and happy! Click here to view their entire prefix menu.

ABA: DINNER $48

Not only is Aba at the top of the list for all foodies and food critics, but now it should be at the top of yours for the next two weeks. They will be offering a 4 course meal including a choice between two of their top wines. They also offer Gluten Free & Vegetarian options on their menu. Check out their Grilled Cauliflower Kebab or Skirt Steak for a lighter meal. Don’t forget to finish the night with some Creme Brûlée Pie, with a hint of burnt honey and apple you will be calling to thank us later. Click here to view their prefix menu for Dinner.

CAFE BA-BA REEBA!: BRUNCH & DINNER $36

Chicago’s favorite place for tapas is offering a prefix Restaurant week menu for Dinner & Brunch this year. You will be able to have three courses at $36 dollars a person which includes a glass of their famous red or white sangria for dinner. And for brunch this will include a glass of their red or white sangria, a mimosa or a trip to their delicious Bloody Mary Bar where you get to add your own toppings. You’ll also be able to choose one tapa for each course ending with a desert. Chicago Insider tip: get the spicy potatoes, the spices paired with the aioli is a to-die for combo! Click here to view their entire Brunch & Dinner menus.
