It’s strange to note that Chicago Restaurant Week actually consists of 17-days of celebrating the city’s unique and renowned culinary scene. Lucky enough for the busy bunch and procrastinares of Chicago, this event lasts from March 25th until April 10th 2022. Therefore, this is the last actual week to take part in Chicago Restaurant Week’s deals. During this time Chicago promotes and connects hundreds of top tier restaurants from many of the diverse neighborhoods. Restaurant Week gives people the opportunity to explore the cultural diversity of Chicago through its culinary scene. Participating restaurants offer discounted prices, packaged deals, prix fixe menus, and more great experiences for everyone’s taste!
