Why can’t Restaurant Week be Restaurant Weeks?  It’s difficult to cram so many restaurants into one short week.  Last year, we had such high hopes for a week of savoring numerous meals from various locales.  Eeehhh – didn’t happen.  Two restaurant stops.  TWO.  Right.  We laughed for days about our expectations.  Much more realistic this year, we made it to one.  I made reservations at NoMI Kitchen to surprise hubs with a pre-birthday celebratory lunch.

NoMI Kitchen is a swank restaurant housed in the plush Park Hyatt.  Since it rests on North Michigan Avenue, the dining experience includes a wonderful view of Chicago’s historic Water Tower and shoppers scrambling along Magnificent Mile.

Does your city offer a Restaurant Week?
