Chicago Restaurant Week is back this year running from Friday, March 19th through Sunday, April 4th and Cocoa Chili Restaurant & Catering will be participating to serve up our Afro-Caribbean-Soul fanfare with a sweet and spicy flair!
Throughout the duration of this annual promotional event, diners can enjoy special prix fixe menus from restaurants throughout Chicago and nearby suburbs.
These multi-course meals are $25 for brunch or lunch, and $39 and/or $55 for dinner (excluding beverages, tax, gratuity, and delivery fees).
Our prix fixe contribution is set as a $39 meal deal that includes your choice of starter (Creole Gumbo or Caribbean Salad), your choice of entrée (Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Curry Chicken, Senegalese Poulet Yassa, or Caribbean Salmon with Mango Salsa), Fried Plantain, Coco Bread, and a trio of Lunchroom Butter Cookies.
Creole Gumbo, Caribbean Salad, Lunchroom Butter Cookies, and Coco Bread are new additions to our menu and will begin being readily available in our regular pickup and delivery options at the conclusion of Chicago Restaurant Week.
Our Creole Gumbo is a warm and savory tradition that harkens back to Chef Niquenya’s Louisiana family roots. Shrimp, chicken, and andouille sausage are married with traditional herbs and spices and the “holy trinity” of celery, green bell peppers, and onions in our thick, red roux.
The Caribbean Salad contain salad greens, pineapples, and mandarin oranges accompanied by our house dressing. Coco Bread is a starchy, sweet, Caribbean sandwich bread that serves as the perfect carrier for spicy meats and sauces.
Finally, rounding out the menu are Lunchroom Butter Cookies, a long-time Chicago favorite. These buttery sweet and flaky cookies send any former Chicago Public School student into an instant state of nostalgia.
We are truly excited to be participating in Chicago Restaurant Week 2021 and are looking forward to pleasing your palate! Visit eatitupchicago.com for more information about participating restaurants today!Follow us on social media:
