A record number of restaurants are taking part this year, which means dining deals at nearly 400 of the Chicago area's hottest food locations, including more than 100 first-time participants and 45 suburban restaurants.
Chef Louie Alexakis of Avli Taverna, a new Greek spot in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, and Chef Dan Harris of Ella Elli, an Italian-Mediterranean restaurant in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, joined ABC7 News at 11 to talk about their special offerings.
Because of its success, Chicago Restaurant Week 2019 has been extended into a third week. Foodies can now make reservations through Tuesday, Feb. 12.
