      Spiaggia is not participating, but Cafe Spiaggia is. The link above shows a menu for Cafe Spiaggia but it doesn't say whether it's for lunch or dinner. All Restaurant Week menu lunches are $22; dinners are either $33 or $44. Since Cafe Spiaggia is moderately priced, I would assume that their RW dinner is $33.

    2. Some restaurants are extending the availability of their Restaurant Week bargains past the official end tomorrow, for an extra day or a week or more. For a complete list, see

        Thanks for the reminder, nsxtasy. Just booked a reservation at Bistro Champaigne which we have enjoyed in the past. And by the way, my wife and I went to Restaurant Michael again on Thursday night and had another spectacular meal. This restaurant is quite a gem and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in a fabulous meal on the Northshore. And remember that there is no corkage fee on Tuesday nights! Don

          We did Mortons,Schaumburg last Friday for dinner. Were there early, 6pm. I think we were probably their first RW dinners. Had to ask specfically about the menu, but it was explained cheerfully. Thought it was a great bargain $33 for a very nice, perfectly cooked filet, huge house salad, nice side of potatoes, and creme brulee. Husband had similar, dessert was the mousse. A ton of food, great service. A good experience.

          Did lunch today at Atwater, Geneva. $22 for salad, veal tenderloin with mashed potatoes and mousse. The salad not as billed (endive, cooked tomato, warm brie, nuts), it was endive, a teeny tiny triangle of cold brie, 2 or possibly 3 raw halved grape (not even cherry) tomatos, a nice but over dressed vineagrette. The rest of the meal was good, husband had salmon. Dessert a bit small, but it was lunch. The menu was offered when asked about it. Later I heard them offering it right away to other tables. Food good, would probably return.
