Chicago Restaurant Week is back in Chicago! But, with all that is happening in the world, there are a few changes. The event now runs March 19th through April 4th. The number of participating restaurants has also changed. In 2020, there were more than 430 venues and this year there are only 250. But, have no fear, you’ll still be able to find some awesome deals. In the past, Chicago Restaurant Week has been all about increasing on-site customers, but with the restrictions on capacity, they have expanded to delivery and takeout. Now to me that’s good news! If you’re not comfortable going out but still want to participate in the deals, you still can!
