It's that time again -- Chicago Restaurant Week. Make that, weeks.
The inaugural Local Tourist Restaurant Week, kicks off today and runs through Friday, offering $25 lunch and $35 dinner menus at 17 restaurants, including one sixtyblue, Hearty and Wave.
The Chicago Originals Restaurant Week, organized by ChicagoOriginals, a group of independent restaurants, starts Monday and goes through Jan. 31. More than 18 restaurants, including Cyrano's Bistrot and Le Titi de Paris, will offer three- and four-course menus for $29.10, and some wines for $29.10.
The most deals, though, are to be found during Chicago Restaurant Week -- the original restaurant week, some might argue, presented by the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau. It runs from Feb. 19 to the 28th. More than 150 restaurants, from super casual P.J. Clarke's to swanky NoMI in the Park Hyatt, will offer three-course lunch and dinner menus for $22 and $32, respectively.
