Weekly Pick: Chicago Restaurant Week

Chicago Restaurant Week is a great culinary celebration featuring more than 250 restaurants in the Chicago area. The 10-day dining event runs February 1–10 and features prix fixe menus starting at $22 for lunch and $33/$44 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). This is an awesome opportunity to visit a restaurant you've been dying to check out for lunch or dinner.

Here are some restaurants I would recommend:

Located in Lincoln Park, Balena features Italian-inspired cuisine offering pizza (my pick), hand-made pasta, spit-roasted meats, fish & vegetables prepared in a wood-fired oven & grill. You can read about my visit here and check out the restaurant week menu here.

Table Fifty-Two is a charming restaurant located in the Gold Coast serving up southern inspired dishes from Chef Art Smith. You can read about my experience here and check out the restaurant week menu here.

Chicago q is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. Located in the Gold Coast, Chicago q is serving up some of the best BBQ in town. Read up on my visit here and check out the restaurant week menu here.

Tavernita has been on my list of restaurants to check out for quite some time so restaurant week seemed like a great excuse to try some tasty dishes inspired by Spanish and Latin American flavors. You can read the restaurant week menu here.

  1. Good Chicago restaurants are not hard to come by, but a good Chicago buffet, that serves gourmet food like we do at the Red Apple Buffet, is a rare find for sure
