Choose Chicago has announced the return of Chicago Restaurant Week on March 19-April 4, 2021.

Chicago Restaurant Week offers local food enthusiasts an opportunity to experience some of the city's most highly sought restaurants. Participating dining establishments showcase specially curated prix-fixe menus with prices set at $25 for brunch and lunch, and $39 and/or $55 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity).

Accounting for the impact of COVID-19 on small businesses—and with support of the restaurant industry at heart—Choose Chicago has adjusted its program dates in 2021 and expanded its purview to accommodate both dine-in menus for restaurants with limited indoor and al fresco service as well as delivery and carry-out menus.

Restaurants may sign up now through Friday, Feb. 12. Participation fees have been waived ($500 value), but partnership with Choose Chicago is required. In 2020, Chicago Restaurant Week featured a record-breaking number of restaurants, including more than 50 in the suburbs and more than 80 first-time participants.

The 2021 lineup will be announced at eatitupchicago.com Wed., Feb. 24. Reservations will also go live at that time.
