Chicago Restaurant Week

Foodies, start your...forks?  Chicago Restaurant Week is here!  This is the perfect time to try a new restaurant with your sweetie or meet a friend for lunch without breaking the bank. A three course dinner is $32, while lunch is $22.

I was ecstatic when Restaurant Week came to Chicago in 2008, as I had experienced its magic in Philadelphia and New York in years prior.  Chicago has world-class chefs creating amazing dishes throughout the city, and there's always an up-and-coming star around the corner. 

This year's event runs February 18 - 28, so you actually get two full weekends to please your palate.  The big names - Naha, Lockwood - will be booked at this point, but with more than 160 participating restaurants, it's safe to say that a tasty new experience is just a click away. 

As with many things in life, I've procrastinated with my reservations, but I'm still hoping for a wine and cheese happy hour at Bin 36 or a mid-week steak at Morton's

Where are you going this week?  And do you need a dining partner?

Update: Check out this great Restaurant Week Calculator from A.V. Club Chicago to get the best value this year.  Thanks to Emily Withrow for the tip!
