My Chicago Restaurant Week 2016 recap

Like every year, when the weather turns chilly, and we are cozying up in our warm homes, the Chicago restaurant industry tempts us to get out in the cold for Chicago Restaurant Week. In case you don’t know what I am talking about (and you should), during almost two weeks an increasing number of restaurants offer reasonable fix price lunches and dinners, so patrons can have a taste of their cuisine at a reduced price.

In my case, it is my chance to eat what in Spain is known as Menú del día. Almost every restaurant there offers it all year round, a fix price lunch menu, often for 12 euros, with four options each for first course, second course and dessert.

I would like to say that I take advantage of it every year, but life happens, and normally I can visit one, at most two restaurants. But this year all the stars were aligned, mostly in the form of a fantastic babysitter and a good work schedule, and I was able to visit four restaurants.

And, even though it has technically ended, you still have a chance to eat in one of the dozens of restaurants that have extended the deal. Otherwise, you will have to wait until next year. Or pay full price.
