Restaurant Week Pick: 25 Degrees
February 24, 2012 | by Restaurant Week Pick: 25 Degrees | Homepage
Even as we’re inundated with the endless prix fixe options of Restaurant Week, there is still something to be said for the comfort of an old fashioned cheeseburger. To sate that craving, and prove that burgers can be elegant, 25 Degrees is offering a burger-centric prixe fixe ($22, lunch; $33, dinner). Start with snacks and sides like spicy tuna on crispy egglpant or tempura green beens before choosing from a slew of juicy sirloin, turkey, or veggie burgers made with sophisticated, artisanal fixings. Options include an Italian-inspired burger topped with roasted tomatoes, crispy prosciutto, and creamy pesto; a Southwestern number laden with chipotle salsa, avocado, and biting mezzo secco jack cheese; and a bistro-style burger packed with carmelized onions, bacon, arugula, thousand island dressing, and more. Desserts change daily and are worth every last calorie. 736 N. Clark St. 312-943-9700
