Bust out your eating pants – you know the ones we mean – Chicago Restaurant Week is upon us!
Through Feb. 9, 2020, take advantage of restaurant deals all over the city and suburbs, with multi-course brunches and lunches that start at $24, and dinners starting at $36 and/or $48 (excluding drinks, tax and gratuity).
It’s not only a great time to try out new places, it’s a chance to support some women entrepreneurs and chefs. To maximize the win-win for Chicago feminist foodies, we’ve compiled a sampling of participating restaurants owned or managed by women or that have women chefs.
Know of one we missed? Let us know!
