CHICAGO RESTAURANT WEEK CHECKLIST
Pick Your Plate
With so many options, start by narrowing it down. Use the website search function to filter by specific restaurant name, neighborhood or cuisine.
Choose among brunch, lunch or dinner participants. More categories such as Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free will also help you discover restaurants with menus tailored to everyone's specific tastes.
Prime reservation times at many of the big name restaurants book up quickly—don't delay or you'll miss out!
Lunch can sometimes yield more availability, as do weeknights early in the week, so be flexible. With everyone and their mother loving brunch these days, those participating restaurants may fill up quickly. To make a reservation, select a participating restaurant from the eatitupchicago.com website and click on "Make a Reservation" to use their OpenTable link. You can also call a restaurant directly.
