Hyde Park restaurants A10 and The Promontory participating in 9th annual Chicago Restaurant Week 2016

Just as many of us are getting over holiday treats and meal indulgences, Chicago’s annual Restaurant Week is back to tempt foodies with “…top fare at value pricing at restaurants throughout the city and surrounding suburbs,” according to the Choose Chicago tourism website.

For two weeks (Friday, January 22 to Thursday, February 4), over 350 Chicago restaurants are offering multiple-course, prix-fixe meals at $22 for lunch and $33 or $44 for dinner, with tax and gratuity not included.

Two noted Hyde Park restaurants are participating – A10 Hyde Park at 1462 E. 53rd Street and The Promontory at 5311 S. Lake Park Avenue. A10 is offering a special dinner menu and The Promontory is offering lunch as well as dinner menus.

The A10 dinner menu includes a first course of roasted beet salad or roasted Kabocha squash soup, a second course of brown butter parsnip cappelletti or braised venison leg, and a third course of sweet potato “dauphines.”

The Promontory lunch menu includes a first course of house green salad or clam chowder and a second course of a Slagel Farms lamb burger, Slagel Farms turkey roulade sandwich, or hand cut pappardelle. Their dinner menu includes a first course of warm beet salad, Wagyu beef tartare, or celery root agnolotti; a second course of Green Circle Farms chicken, P.E.I. mussels, or roasted squash risotto; and a third course of chocolate and hazelnut pave.
