Veterans Served Us, Now Chicago Restaurants Serve Them
Veteran’s Day is Sunday, November 11, but it’s observed on Monday, November 12, and on both days, some of the Chicago area’s best restaurants are offering free meals to those who gave so much for their country.
III Forks. As a small token of their appreciation for the tremendous sacrifices made by America’s fighting men and women, III Forks is welcoming current and former service personnel to dine free at their restaurant on Monday, November 12. Any meal up to $40 will be offered free of charge to veteran’s and active military. With this offer, military personnel past and present will be able to eat fish, steak, salad, whatever they want.
Perry’s Steakhouse. At Perry’s Steakhouse in Oak Brook, veterans and active military can enjoy a complimentary Sunday supper. Sunday, November 11, this three-course Sunday Supper begins with a choice of salad, then a massive Perry’s Pork Chop (seven fingers high, cured, roasted, slow-smoked and served with homemade applesauce) and finally Perry’s Dessert Trio (vanilla bean crème brulee, chocolate crunch and Praline Cheese cake). The men and women of the military had big hearts to serve their country; we hope they have big stomachs, too, because this is a generous-sized meal.
McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood & Steaks. Honoring vets, active military and Gold Star honorees (parents and spouses), McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood on Sunday, November 11, will offer a huge range of complimentary meals. Options include salmon rigatoni, buttermilk fried shrimp, cedar plank or grill salmon, blackened chicken fettucine, parmesan crusted chicken, beer battered fish & chips, tender beef medallions, and several other dishes.
Note that at most of these restaurants, reservations are required, and active military/veterans will need to present military I.D. At some restaurants, active/military veterans must be accompanied by a guest. Check with the individual restaurant for details when you call for reservations.
