LAKEVIEW — Restaurants throughout Lakeview and Roscoe Village will offer special deals, prix fixe menus and more for takeout or dine-in beginning this weekend for the Lakeview Roscoe Village Restaurant Week.

This year’s restaurant week — an initiative of the recently merged Lakeview Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce — runs Friday through April 18 and will raise money for local food pantries while encouraging neighbors to support small businesses.

When someone orders from participating restaurants, $3 will be added to the tab and donated to the Lakeview Pantry and Common Pantry.

“It’s the perfect way to try new, delicious eats while supporting local restaurants and giving back to a great cause,” the chamber said.

More information, including a list of participating restaurants and their deals, can be found on the Lakeview Roscoe Village Chamber website.
