About Chicago Restaurant Week

What is Chicago Restaurant Week? 

Organized each winter by Choose Chicago, the city's official tourism organization, Chicago Restaurant Week gives visitors and local foodies an opportunity to enjoy specialty prix fixe menus from more than 250 participating Chicago restaurants. The multi-course dining experience starts at $22 for lunch, and $33 and/or $44 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). 

When is the next Chicago Restaurant Week?

In 2015, Chicago Restaurant Week took place January 30 to February 12.

The 9th Annual Chicago Restaurant Week returns January 22 - February 4, 2016. For fourteen days, enjoy dining deals throughout the city and surrounding suburbs and experience Chicago's rich, culinary diversity.

How do I take part in Chicago Restaurant Week? 

Nothing is required for participation in Restaurant Week, but it is strongly recommended that diners make reservations in advance. To make a reservation, you may book through EatItUpChicago.com or call the restaurant directly. All participating restaurants should provide you with their special Restaurant Week Menu; if the menu is not provided upon seating, please feel comfortable to request the special menu.

Which restaurants are involved? 

More than 250 restaurants throughout Chicago and nearby suburbs take part in the annual promotion. For Chicago Restaurant Week 2016, a complete list of participating restaurants and the multi-course menu offerings will be posted on EatItUpChicago.com in early January.  

Are reservations required? 

Reservations are not required, but are highly recommended. There is no guarantee that walk-in guests will be accommodated, so please call ahead or book your reservation online at EatItUpChicago.com.



Chicago Restaurant Week is an exclusive partnership program organized by Choose Chicago that is designed to promote the restaurant industry and drive traffic to participating establishments during a typically slow time of year.

Chicago Restaurant Week 2015 proved to be one of the most successful yet with 333 participating restaurants throughout Chicagoland. The impact of the promotion was more than $24.2 million in direct dining spending in Chicago area restaurants, serving 528,000+ diners over the course of fourteen days.
