This year’s edition features a wide range of options all across the city, from Rogers Park to Hyde Park. The 17-day celebration of local cuisine includes many of the best restaurants in Chicago as well as beloved neighborhood destinations. We browsed through all of the participating restaurants and have put together some recommendations, whether you’re craving a decadent dinner, brunch with a view or simply looking for a bargain.
What is Chicago Restaurant Week?
Chicago Restaurant Week is an annual, citywide event that features special tasting menus at hundreds of Chicago restaurants. Each participating location offers prix-fixe lunch ($25), brunch ($25) or dinner ($42 or $59).
Chicago Restaurant Week Lunch 2024: Gene & Georgetti
A majority of folks visit this iconic and longstanding Chicago spot for its steaks, but don’t let the absence of beef deter you from the great deal that’s offered during the day. Priced at $25, Gene & Georgetti’s lunch menu boasts some of the restaurant’s signature dishes, such as the garbage salad and the boneless chicken alla Joe. You’ll also get a sweet treat like tiramisu or Italian cookie gelato to cap off the meal.

More than 380 eateries will participate in 2024 Chicago Restaurant week, including 46 suburban restaurants
Chicago Restaurant Week will bring deals and specials to hundreds of city restaurants and even dozens in the suburbs, but where can you find the best deals for the big event?
Restaurant Week deals vary between three different price points — $25, $42 and $59. Between the hundreds of menus in dozens of Chicago neighborhoods and suburbs, picking a place for dinner or lunch may be a bit overwhelming.
That’s why a Chicago Reddit user put together a spreadsheet detailing potential savings, costs and more.
The post, which was shared in a subreddit dedicated to Chicago food, is done annually for Chicago Restaurant Week, mirroring ones seen in previous years, and is often hailed by residents.
“The hero we all need,” one user wrote.
In an effort to help categorize the best deals, the spreadsheet breaks down the offerings into a handful of different categories including “Top $59 dinners,” “Top $42 dinners,” “Top Brunch” and more. It’s based on each restaurant’s “Restaurant Week” menu “compared to their current menu.”
“The best deals are decided based on whether you are definitely going to save money, definitely going to overspend, or whether you could save or spend depending on your choice,” the user wrote, noting however that accuracy cannot be guaranteed and diners should check with restaurants to confirm details first.
