This week, the Chicago Bitches are especially excited about Chef Week, which returns to Chicago each Spring, and features a $22 three-course prix-fixe menu (lunch) or a $44 four-course prix-fixe (dinner.) Chef Week lasts Monday – Friday, so check out some of our must-try picks, below!
We’re starting off Chef Week with an Oyster Po’ Boy & Key Lime Pie for lunch at GT Fish & Oyster, located at 531 N Wells St Chicago, IL 60654. Can’t sneak away for lunch? Don’t worry, head to GT for their dinner specials instead.
Chef Week and Taco Tuesday collide at Bar Takito, with their 2nd course offering of fish tacos. Bar Takito is located at 201 N Morgan St Chicago, IL 60607, serving both lunch and dinner specials.
We’re treating our clients to lunch at Blackbird for a taste of spring with salmon, sunchokes, & rapini. Blackbird is located at 619 West Randolph, Chicago, IL 60661, serving lunch specials only.
Time to enjoy dinner, cocktails, and dessert with the girls at Homestead’s rooftop patio. We suggest you bring a jacket, as this week’s temps aren’t as warm as last weeks. Homestead on the Roof is located at 1924 W. Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622, serving dinner specials only.
Time to rise and shine! Kick off your weekend with a great workout – we are loving the new SoulCycle location in Old Town. After you sweat out all those calories, indulge in a little wine and cheese at the 5th Annual Pastoral Artisan Producer Festival which is held at the Chicago French Market from 11 a.m. to 3 p,m. This is a FREE tasting and meet-the-maker event featuring producers of artisan cheese, bread, beer, wine, charcuterie, confections, and other foodstuffs.
Brunch, of course! Relax with a Sunday brunch at Gather. Try their brioche French toast or their brunch salad which is made with a poached egg, smoked duck, green beans, frisee, brioche crouton, and a red wine vinaigrette. Gather serves brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m and is located 4539 N Lincoln Ave Chicago, IL 60625.
