Windy City Family and Group Meal Menus to Go

via River Roast

In times of uncertainty and unknowing, gathering for a family meal is always a good thing. No matter if you’re gathering with your blood relatives, your roommates, or even your long-distance family over a video chat…a family meal is a family meal, and that is a good thing! With that in mind, plenty of spots are offering group meals, dinner deals, and lots more to make it easier and more cost-effective for us all to continue to dine together as a family.

River Roast {315 North LaSalle Street, Chicago; 312.822.0100}

Until spring weather actually shows up for good, let’s dig into some comfort food! River Roast is a long-time Chicago favorite, and they’re now delivering through DoorDash! They have plenty of carry-out specials, including the Winter Chicken Dinner, which comes with whole roast chicken with River Roast potatoes, plus your choice of chopped salad or roasted seasonal veggies for under $50. There is also the Fish Dinner and Pork Shank Dinner, which are both perfect for sharing with your family or roommates. Plus, right now, you’ll receive a $25.00 gift card for orders of $50.00+ and a $50.00 gift card for all orders over $100.00.

Siena Tavern {51 West Kinzie Street, Chicago; 312.595.1322}

You have been going to Siena Tavern for date night for years, but now they’re here to take care of your whole house with 3-course family meals! Choose an antipasti, pizza, and pasta to share…or take on all by yourself! Options include the Wagyu Beef Meatball, Truffle Mushroom Pizza, Cacio e Pepe, and Birthday Cake gelato for family meal, but they also have wine, booze, gelato pints, and more for order!

Marchesa {535 North Wells Street, Chicago; 312.527.9535}

If you’re dreaming of a vacation getaway, but know that won’t happen for a while, ordering from your favorite restaurants can act like a mini vacation. Marchesa, for example, will give you a taste of France, and offers delivery through GrubHub! Specialties from Chef Didier Durand include Duck Breast, Diver Scallops, Moules Frites, Caviar, European Cheese & Charcuterie, and more. It’s the perfect meal for a date night or special treat.

LYFE Kitchen {multiple locations}

If you’re trying to keep your health on track, or need a fun lunchtime feast, LYFE Kitchens has launches their Daily Provisions program. This daily meal bundle will keep you nourished and thriving all day long thanks to a combination of 1 smoothie, 1 salad + protein, 1 soup, and 1 snack for $24! Order at their website or on the LYFE Mobile App.

Riccardo Osteria {1023 West Lake Street, Chicago; 312.291.8620}

This latest West Loop location from Chef Riccardo Michi is about to have their one-year anniversary in Chicago on March 26. Sadly, they won’t be able to celebrate the way they want, but they ARE still offering 50% off bottles of wine, as well as both pick-up and delivery meals that will *feel* like a celebration once you get them home! We recommend the Bucatini Carbonara and the Milk-Fed Veal Chop for dinner tonight.

Frontier {1072 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago; 773.772.4322}

They might not be able to deliver a whole goat or pig, but Frontier’s standard dinner and brunch menus are still available for delivery and curbside pick up! Their Smoked Chicken Wings, 5-Cheese Mac, and Banana Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding are all perfect for sharing at home while their dining room is closed.

Lettuce Take Care of You” Meals

The Lettuce Entertain You restaurant family is coming together to offer weekly family meals from some of their top restaurants. Three meals a week, that all serve four people, for $150 a week! You can order once for a whole week and enjoy specials from RPM Italian, Bub City, Ramen-San, and more. The meal plans change weekly, but they’re all equally delicious.

Tortoise Supper Club {350 North State Street, Chicago; 312.755.1700}

Supper clubs make the best date night food, and that’s why Tortoise Supper Club is offering a curated selection of their menu for curbside pickup or delivery on Friday and Saturday evenings. Think Classic Meatloaf Dinner or Crab-Crusted Cod Dinner paired with a great glass of wine! You can place your order online, or call Wednesday through Saturday from noon-5pm.
