Chicago Restaurant Week is upon us once again. Starting today and running through Feb. 9, hundreds of restaurants will participate in the 10th annual culinary celebration by offering special three- and four-course prix fixe menus. Diners have the option of brunch ($22), lunch ($22) or dinner ($33/$44). We’ve highlighted some of the best neighborhood gems to try and if you haven’t already made reservations yet, well now’s the time.

Many of the city’s hottest spots are fully booked but there are lots of quality choices still available. The following are some noteworthy ones on OpenTable with seating during peak dinner hours over the next two weeks. So no, you won’t have to eat at 5 p.m. or 10 p.m. just to get in the door. Look over the menus first to ensure there aren’t any unwelcome surprises, then use the opportunity to try all those places that are on your bucket list.
