The Evanston Chamber of Commerce kicks off its first Evanston Restaurant Week on Friday to give diners a taste of the city's growing restaurant scene.
During the event, which runs through March 26, participating restaurants will be offering custom prix fixe menus for lunch or dinner.
“Evanston has become Chicagoland’s premier dining destination,” Michael Pure, owner of The Margarita Inn and member of the Evanston chamber’s board, said. “We have an impressive variety of restaurants where even the most discerning foodie can indulge. … and price-conscious families in search of healthy and hearty choices for their finicky eaters will enjoy a night out together.”
Evanston Restaurant Week is structured for price consistency - prix fixe menus will be $20, $30 or $40, with some of the offerings designed for two to share.
Diners in Evanston can experience fine dining at restaurants such as Oceanique, Found and KOI; trendy creations at Boltwood, Peckish Pig and Tapas Barcelona; and craveable treats at Bat 17, Edzo’s and YoFresh Yogurt Cafe.
