3 Dinners in Chicago for Under $ 30 Each
The next time you are in the Windy City, make sure to sample some of these local favorites. Here are 3 that will not leave your wallet empty:
Chef Chris Curren calls his usual cooking “Twisted.” You'll call it delicious any day. And if you visit on Sunday, you can call it cheap, too.
Every Sunday he set out a decidedly “untwisted” family style table of Mid-Western favorites such as roasted chicken, glazed carrots and buttered green beans.
Blue 13 is at 416 West Ontario and 3 courses will run you $ 20. Sunday only.
Cafe des Architechtes
The Sunday through Thursday “Neighborhood Friends' Menu at Cafe des Architechtes includes flatiron steak with wild leek puree, English peas and fingerling potatoes.
I like this neighborhood.
Cafe des Architechtes is in the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower at 20 East Chestnut St.. and 3 courses will set you back about $ 29. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday Only
Even if you are super-hungry, you'll be hard-pressed to spend $ 30 at Turquoise Cafe. This Turkish, Mediterranean diner is a perfect stop any night of the week.
Start with home-made Turkish bread, with delicious yogurt dip, and then try the Lahmacun (ground beef and chopped veggies on flatbread) and red lentil soup with mint.
If you are really hungry, get a beef tenderloin kebab with grilled vegetables and rice pilaf.
And do not forget the baklava. You'll still have plenty of coin left.
Turquoise Cafe is located at 2147 West Roscoe St. Louis. and you will have to try really hard to spend $ 30 – any day of the week.
