Menu Best Practices

Your CRW prix fixe menu(s) must be uploaded by Friday, November 30, 2018 in order to be listed on the official CRW website,

Be creative and descriptive with your menu items. This might be a diner’s first experience with your restaurant.

Restaurant Week menu(s) must include: 

  • Chicago Restaurant Week must be noted or add CRW Logo
  • Restaurant name and/or logo
  • Whether the menu is for lunch, brunch and/or dinner 
  • Menu pricing – lunch and brunch - $24, dinner - $36 and/or $48 (excludes beverage, tax & gratuity) 
  • Gluten-free and vegetarian options must be noted on the menu 
  • Day(s) and time(s) that the brunch menu is available

Saving your menu: Do not include special characters in the file name – apostrophes, ampersands and hashtags. The system will reject your menu, and it will not appear on the website. 

File size & format: All menu(s) including lunch, brunch and/or dinner must be saved under one PDF file.

Uploading your menu(s): 

  • Log in to the Partner Extranet
  • Go to Partner Record tab 
  • Scroll down to the Amenities tab
  • Click on Restaurant Week highlighted in blue
  • Click Edit Amenities
  • Upload menu file 
  • Click Save

Additional Information and Suggestions: 

  • Make sure to present all diners with the Restaurant Week prix fixe menu(s) along with the regular menu. 
  • Eliminate daily specials during the promotional period (January 25 – February 7, 2019) so customers gravitate toward the CRW menu. 
  • Consider Adding value option (wine pairings, specialty cocktails, etc.) 
  • Prix fixe menu offering must be of good value.
