Chicago Chef Week is starting next week, and 84 restaurants are participating across the city. From March 16-21, three-course lunches will be available for $22 and three-course dinners for $44. This year, three Logan Square restaurants are participating.
From the tried and true to the new kid on the block, Chef Week is a great excuse to revisit an old favorite or try something new in the neighborhood. Book a table on the Chicago Chef Week website because they tend to go fast.
