Prix-fixe mania continues with Chicago Chef Week

| No Comments

For those of you who just can't get enough of dining deals, there's yet another restaurant week to look forward to: Chicago Chef Week, March 22 through 28.

This is not to be confused with Chicago Restaurant Week, which starts Friday and runs through Feb. 28 and is organized by the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau.

This is the second year for Chicago Chef Week, the brainchild of the BOKA restaurant group. The idea last year was to involve restaurants who weren't CCTB members and thus couldn't participate in Restaurant Week.

But it's all about inclusion (and, for restaurants using their noggin, another opportunity to draw in business). This year, whoever wants to do it can do it.

Bonus: At the more than 20 participating restaurants (spokeswoman Elizabeth Hamel anticipates "20 to 25 more restaurants signing on" by March), the three-course featured menus are $20 at lunch and $30 at dinner. During Chicago Restaurant Week, the prix-fixe menus are $22 and $32, respectively.

Any way you cut it, it's good for diners -- and, we hope, good for the restaurants.
