  • Visit

    The official website has every participating restaurant and special Restaurant Week menu posted. Any updates will be made daily so check back often.
  • Make a Plan

    With so many options, start by narrowing it down. Use the website search function to filter by specific restaurant name, neighborhood or cuisine. Choose between lunch or dinner participants. More categories such as Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free also help to find specific menus. Meals that have been matched with special pairings from Goose Island Beer and Terlato Wines show up too.
  • Reserve Early

    Prime reservations at many of the 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. To make a reservation, select a participating restaurant from the website and click on Make a Reservation to use their OpenTable link. You can also call a restaurant directly.
