Whether you’re looking for fine dining, a casual bite with friends, or something new, Naperville’s Restaurant Week will have some deals that you can’t wait to eat up!
“It kicks off January 27 and runs through February 9. Restaurants are a little slower so it’s a great chance for them to offer discounts and special offers for you to be able to try something new,” said Christine Jeffries, President of the Naperville Development Partnership.
One way of doing that is with a special prix fix menu. Restaurants like Delirio Latin Fusion and Hugo’s Frog Bar and Fish House offer deals with a taste of their cuisine.
“It gives people an opportunity to come out to a restaurant that normally doesn’t see you because of some price-points,” said Anthony Losurdo, General Manager of Hugo’s Frog Bar and Fish House.
The appetizing prices are spread throughout all of Naperville.
“Naperville has about 250 restaurant establishments from ‘mom and pop’ to fast casual to fine dining, so if you go throughout the city there’s an area in every part of town and we have restaurants from every area in town participating in this,” added Jeffries.
And those deals cover all price points: including family friendly meals at spots like Q Barbeque, Potter’s Place and Aurelio’s Pizza on Route 59.
“We serve pizza, pasta, sandwich, salads, our famous spinach calabrese is very popular, a little bit different,” said Celeste Wagner, Owner of Aurelio’s Pizza at Springbrook Square.
You can get a taste of some new restaurants in town as well. Empire Burger Bar and Hotel Indigo’s new restaurant Plank Bar and Kitchen will offer daily deals.
“Plank Bar and Kitchen is actually named after Plank Road in Naperville, we are contemporary American traditional restaurant open to the public and hotel guests. It’s a very relaxed and casual environment,” said Alma Arreola, Food and Beverage Manager at Hotel Indigo.
