Chicago Restaurant Week reservations being taken

So, late January and early February is kind of a slow time in the foodie world. Things slow down in restaurants as diners cut back on food due to the new year's resolutions and after over-spending during the Christmas holiday. There are several weeks until Spring when the next seasonal menu changes will occur. It's a good time to head out and try some of those pricy places that you've been wanting to dine at. Prix Fixe lunch and dinner menus are available.

There are still a few days left to enjoy Chicago Restaurant Week. Take a peek at where you'll find more than 330 restaurants, including a few suburban locations, taking part in Chicago Restaurant Week.

Here's a peek at what I tried out for Chicago Restaurant Week on the Odyssey Dinner Cruise. :)

January 30 - February 12, 2015
Get ready for 14 belt-busting days! Chicago Restaurant Week 2015 returns on January 30 and continues through February 12 with two weeks of dining deals.
