A culinary celebration of flavor is happening along Route 66 – just outside of Chicago. The restaurants of Joliet and some of its surrounding areas are hosting their second restaurant Week event from February 18 – 25, 2018. Over 30 restaurants are expected to offer great deals on flavorful meals, including some restaurants located in Joliet, Morris, Wilmington, Channahon, Shorewood and Lockport.
This year’s celebration includes some new participants – and carnivores will definitely rejoice. Joliet’s MyGrain Brewing tops the list, along with nearby Final Cut Steakhouse are joining this year’s celebration. And with Al’s Steakhouse, Morris Chop House, and The Reserve Steakhouse coming back, there are some great steak options that will be calling your name.
If seafood is the taste of the day, Big Fish Bar & Grille and Pesciolino Osteria are definite destinations you will want to visit. Hamburgerseria and Cross Street Grill offer great burgers and other sandwiches. Maybe you’re thinking about some cocktails, Tin Roof Joliet, Embers Tap House and Port Noir Wine & Martini Bar have the right recipe for you.
Joliet is just a short drive from Chicago, with plenty to do and experience. You can easily turn the trip into a mini vacation, taking in some Route 66 history at the Joliet Area Hisotical Museum or nearby Wilmington’s Gemini Giant. Nearby concert venues include the historic Rialto Square Theatre and the new The Forge (the latter also serving lunch Restaurant Week specials). Take in a great deal at some of the casino restaurants of Harrah’s Joliet and Hollywood Casino Joliet, then hit the tables or slot machines to
