SHARE Six more days of discount dining

If you couldn’t manage to snag a seat for Chicago Restaurant Week (February 20-27), you need to seriously up your OpenTable game. But we’re not here to criticize…we want to help. And the concurrent Chicago Chef Week (February 22-27) should lift your spirits, not to mention give your clicking finger a good kick in the caboose (all reservations can be made on OpenTable.com).

The six-day event has a similar bent to Restaurant Week: three-course prix-fixe dinners cost $32 per person, and lunches (offered at Province and Sepia only) are $22. The difference is that each participating restaurant is known for being chef-driven. The spots in question:

Boka, 1729 N. Halsted (Giuseppe Tentori)

Green Zebra, 1460 W. Chicago
