Celebrate Chicago Restaurant Week in Hyde Park

Sponsored by the Choose Chicago tourism organization, the 8th Annual Chicago Restaurant Week takes place from Jan. 30 – Feb. 12, 2015. Diners will enjoy multi-course specialty prix fixe menus at more than 250 Chicago restaurants, priced at $22 for lunch and $33 and/or $44 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax, and gratuity).

This year, two of the participating restaurants are from Hyde Park – Matthias Merges’ A10, located at 1466 E. 53rd Street and Jovanis Bouargoub’s Porkchop, located at 1516 E. Harper Court. Both restaurateurs were recently profiled in the Chicago Tribune for their contributions to the burgeoning dining scene on the South Side. A10 was also listed as one of dining critic Phil Vettel’s top picks for Restaurant Week.

A10 will be offering a $44 three-course dinner menu. Porkchop will be offering a $22 two-course lunch menu and a $33 three-course dinner menu. For reservations, diners can contact A10 at 773-288-1010 and Porkchop at 773-493-9333.
