Chef’s Week Like Restaurant Week, only smaller

Carlos Gaytan is one of the many chef's participating in Chicago Chef's Week.

Chicago Chef’s Week has a lower price point ($20 lunch/$30 dinner), fewer available slots for dinner service & smaller in number of participating restaurants than Restaurant Week. However, it still seems like a good deal.

If you need guidance about what to try, we’ve cherry picked a few spots from their list:

The Bristol – We like the daring dishes in this comfortable neighborhood-y spot
