Resy’s Guide to Off Menu Week Chicago


Nothing beats feeling like a regular at a restaurant. Those moments when an off menu dish appears as a gift from the chef, or when the somm tops your glass with something they just happen to have open. At Resy, we crave connection with the people behind our favorite restaurants. So we decided to create a brand-new dining program that would bring this special connection to life, and give you insider access to your favorite restaurants: Off Menu Week.

From October 21st to 27th, iconic Chicago eateries and neighborhood mainstays will take part in seven days of experimentation, serving trial dishes and off menu hits (alongside their mainstay menus) all auditioning for a spot on the main stage. Here’s what to expect.
