Kankakee County Restaurant Week

January 20-27, 2018 

Tom and Jane go to dinner. They are seated at their favorite booth, phone in hand. The waitress drops by with a smile and finds this duo checking-in to their favorite eatery and offers to return in a few moments. Time goes by and as the waitress returns, they do a quick once over to the menu and select their entrée. A basket of rolls and 20 minutes later, the main course makes its way to the table. Viola! It. Is. Picture. Time! Crop? Check! Filter? Check! And…post! 

If you can’t tell by the number of food themed photos sprinkled all over social media, we’re here to confirm that culinary experiences make for one heck of a memory maker. After the thrill of the gym has worn off and we face our holiday credit card bills, keep dining out at the top of your list. We promise you won’t be disappointed! 

Kankakee County Restaurant Week 2018 is a week-long event that offers diners an opportunity to sample unique menu items or try out a new restaurant through a prix fixe menu. Culinary partners throughout the area come together to celebrate their expertise—storytelling through food. If your tastes are simple, sophisticated or somewhere in between, these folks will satisfy your appetite with truly tasty options and original flare. 

Be a part of the action January 20-27 as restaurateurs roll out the red carpet! Bon appetit!
