For years Ada St. has been going above and beyond with its themed menus for Restaurant Week, and 2018 is no exception: Chef Scott Sax presents a three-course, rapper’s delight dinner. Each dish is brilliantly paired with a well-known lyric that will have you freestyling your order. Can you guess which Kanye West lyric goes with the seared cod? $44 dinner
Chicago Restaurant Week means different things to different people. For some, it’s a ripe opportunity to cash in on a discounted four-course dinner. For others, it’s a much needed push to get out and try one of the city’s best new restaurants. Regardless of which camp you fall into, the annual two-week event can be overwhelming to navigate; there are more than 370 brunch, lunch and dinner menus to choose from, after all. To make it easy on you, we looked at all of the options (yes, even Rainforest Café) to pluck the very best for your consideration. From a noteworthy new brunch to a rap-themed dinner to a vegetarian’s dream menu, these are the 10 best offerings for 2018. Chicago Restaurant Week runs from January 26 to February 8, and reservations are available now at eatitupchicago.com.
