There's a good reason why Chicago Restaurant Week is hosted in the dead of winter. It's the perfect excuse to give your favorite delivery app a rest, bust out of hibernation and hunt down an amazing meal. This year, the annual event runs from January 24 through February 9 with more than 400 of the best restaurants in Chicago participating. The city's most talented chefs are challenged to dream up destination-worthy multi-course menus for brunch ($24), lunch ($24) and dinner ($36 or $48), while diners hope to score a tasty deal. Of course, not all Chicago Restaurant Week menus are created equal—in fact, some are downright lackluster. We reviewed hundreds of them, crunched the numbers and found the most promising options for every need—from boozy brunching and leisurely lunching to a smart splurge and a gluten-free dinner worth singing about. Check out the 15 best Chicago Restaurant Week deals for 2020 and make your reservations accordingly.
