If you live in Evanston, you know that the local restaurant scene has become hotter than ever in the last few years.
First, the area was flooded with new, hip restaurants like Found, Smylie Brothers, Peckish Pig and more. Then, the media started taking notice. By the time the New York Times wrote about the best places to eat and drink in Evanston, we knew we had become a true dining destination.
Now, we want to spread the word about our amazing restaurant scene. The Evanston Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce Evanston Restaurant Week, happening March 18-26! Throughout the week, you’ll get a chance to visit a wide range of restaurants throughout Evanston and experience a special tasting menu at each location.
