It's restaurant month on Chicago's North Shore again! The idea of North Shore restaurants hosting a "restaurant month" was conceived by the Chicago North Shore Convention and Visitor's Bureau and modeled after the concept that is offered in major cities throughout the country.
For the entire month of February, 100 North Shore restaurants will be participating and offering various specials and discounts including dining 2-for-1, free appetizers or desserts, and prix fixe meals. Gina Speckman, director of the Bureau, said:
"Not only do we have gifted and award-winning chefs, but the diversity of the cuisine that is offered in our region rivals any major city in the world."
This year's number of restaurants - 100 - is the highest it's been since the promotion first began in 2010. With so many offerings, I think it's safe to say that there is something for everyone.
A short list of restaurants that are participating:
Bob Chinn's Crabhouse - Wheeling
Boltwood - Evanston
Cafe Aroma - Winnetka
Stained Glass - Winnetka
Found - Evanston
Grateful Bites Pizza - Winnetka
Guanajuato - Glencoe
Guildhall - Glencoe
Hecky's - Evanston
Maggiano's - Skokie
Oceanique - Evanston

--Valentine's Day, February 14, is excluded from the Restaurant Month promotion. Here is a link to other North Shore offerings on that day: Valentine's Day Promotions.
--I was surprised to see no Wilmette restaurants on this list - unfortunate because there are so many good ones. I called the Wilmette/Kenilworth Chamber and spoke to their executive director Julie Yusim who told me that Wilmette is not a part of the Chicago North Shore Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
