RWxRN (Restaurant Week by River North) Announces Dates, Participants for 2nd Annual Event
In Chicago, summertime is basically one big celebration. During these way-to-short warm weather months we celebrate sunshine, blue skies and temperatures north of 75 degrees with water sports, beach days and more. Now, Windy City residents have one more thing to celebrate: the world class cuisine of one of Chicago’s most historic neighborhoods, River North.
Monday, August 6th will kick off the second annual RWxRN (Restaurant Week by River North,) a week-long event highlighting the culinary offerings in the city’s dynamic River North neighborhood. For seven days guests can indulge in some of the best cuisine the city has to offer without breaking the bank. Spearheaded by Tortoise Supper Club co-owners (and life-long Chicagoans,) Keene & Megan Addington, RWxRN features specially priced prix-fixe menus and limited-edition dishes from a curated list of River North restaurants. In addition to offering great deals to diners, RWxRN also allows local chefs to showcase summer produce and other seasonal ingredients from regional purveyors.
