The highly anticipated 7th Annual Chicago Restaurant Week 2014, kicking off January 24, announced today that online reservations are now open.
Four days and 40 new restaurants have been added to this year’s foodies fest putting a grand total of more than 250 of Chicago’s finest dining destinations in the mix. This year’s culinary celebration will run a full two weeks from January 24 through February 6, 2014.
More good news, unlike most everything else where prices are on the rise, the costs for this year’s meals remains the same as 2013— with prix fixe menus starting at $22 for lunch and $33/$44 for dinner, excluding beverages, tax, and gratuity, for all participating restaurants.
New to this year’s Chicago Restaurant Week are American Junkie, Beatrix, CH Distillery, Quartino, Stella Barra Pizzeria, The Boarding House, The Refinery and Siena Tavern, to name a few.
Also new this year, Choose Chicago is teaming up with Uber* to bring free rides to Chicago Restaurant Week patrons. The Chicago Restaurant Week team will donate $1 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository for each first Uber ride taken during the 14-day dining event. Chicago Restaurant Week fans receive a free first ride up to $25 off by entering the code CHICAGORW when they sign up.
