Chicago Restaurant Week 2011

The extensive list for this year's Chicago Restaurant Week is available on their website! A great opportunity to try a restaurant you've been eyeing for a 22$ lunch or 33$-44$ dinner prix fixe. The Chicago Convention & Tourism Bureau (CCTB) produced this event to celebrate the world-class dining that Chicago has to offer. It has over 200 participating restaurants and last year it proved to be very successful with 117 restaurants and over $11.6 million in revenue. Personally, it just gives me another excuse to eat out and try somewhere new. It also helps on the wallet. A 22$ lunch menu at a place that normally goes for higher seems like enough of an excuse for me! Check out the list for yourself and don't forget to make reservations.


  1. So many great options this year! Already made 3 reservations for restaurant week. What restaurants are you trying?

  2. I hope to try Boka ( havent been yet), Blackbird for lunch, and not sure where else yet .. any suggestions?

  3. S ~ I did both BOKA and Blackbird last year and would recommend them! I also would recommend De Cero, Province, and Gemini Bistro ~ all are tasty. This year I'm doing Cafe de Architects and Oceanique so far... one of my favorite weeks of the year!
