Northwest Indiana introduces Savor the South Shore Restaurant Week

Chicago Restaurant Week is a big deal to foodies. It’s a stretch of days in the wintery slow season when some of the finest dining spots in the city offer special menus to entice new customers into their doors. Deep discounts allow diners to try out some great upscale spots that can be quite pricey when ordering from the regular menu. It’s also just a great time to peruse menus and find places you have never heard of.
