Petterino's - Chicago
This 1940s-style Lettuce Entertain You restaurant offers updated takes on American classics and comfort foods. Adjacent to the Goodman Theater, Petterino's serves as a popular destination before and after productions at the wolrd-renown cultural institution.
One of the most attractive options on the menu is the prix-fixe offering, which is ideal for pre-theatergoers. It's $34.95 per person for three courses, with selections like french-fried calamari, chicken pot pie and steak Diane. For those coming for the regular dinner menu, choices range from a seven-ounce filet and 18-ounce prime ribeye to chicken parmigiana and teriyaki-glazed salmon.
Petterino's biggest night is on Mondays, which is reserved for an open-mic event. That's when professional and amateur performers crowd the bar in anticipation of their turn in the spotlight. Many visiting artists--particularly those in town performing in one of the Broadway in Chicago productions--frequent Petterino's on this occasion.
A Do-Rite Donuts & Coffee outpost is adjacent to the restaurant.
