Chicago Restaurant Week is here!

The 5th Annual Chicago Restaurant Week started yesterday.   Because it would be so easy to dine out every night until February 26th, I'm being a big girl and limiting myself to a lunch and dinner.  My bank account thanks me.

Two restaurants out of over 200, how do I choose?  Since I'll try anything once, I narrowed my choices by geography and parking.   Translated:  I wanted to save gas and get metered parking.

My selections for this week:  Gioco for lunch ($22 for the prix fixe menu) and Michael Jordan's Steak House for dinner (the dinner prix fixe menu here is $44)

Now, if you want to get a deal on a meal and give a little back... check out Groupon's Now! Deals.  For a $1 donation to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, some restaurants are giving a free glass of Blue Moon beer (must be 21 or older, of course).  Look for image below to see which restaurants are participating on each day.
