Today is the start of the 3rd annual Chicago Restaurant Week. It runs through February 28. Over 170 restaurants around the city have special prix fixe meals for lunch and dinner.
South Loop favorites
Some South Loop favorites are among those participating, including The Chicago Firehouse, La Cantina Grill, Weather Mark Tavern, Zapatista's, and one of my favorites, Tampas Valencia.
This is a great way to check out some of those restaurants you've been meaning to try and, with the prix fixe meals, save some money too.
