Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Move over, Alinea. There’s a new wave of Chicago restaurants that are making the astronomically expensive, long-winded tasting-menu experience more approachable and affordable, offering foodies a multi-course hit list of elevated dishes for less than $100 a person. Ranging from the hottest fine dining restaurants Chicago has to offer to a standout stall inside one of the best food halls in Chicago, these coursed-out menus don't skimp on presentation or ingredients, so you can eat like a queen without breaking the bank. And since there’s room in the budget, go ahead and ask to see the wine list—better yet, the bottle list.
