    Sandy, most Spaniards find that tradition repulsive and shameful. They don't want to be associated with it and slowly but surely it'll be banned nationally. It's a matter of when, not if. There is a recalcitrant (yet small) cross section of the population that unfortunately supports it, the same ones who didn't have a problem supporting other shameful yet formerly legal practices that I would rather not mention. It's unacceptable. Spain has recently changed other contemptible laws. It's a matter of time at this point in history. The EU cut subsidies to fund such an abomination. What an unpresentable tradition. An embarrassment.

Chicago Restaurant Week guide: Phil Vettel's list of best bets

Mon Ami Gabi, 2300 N. Lincoln Park West and 260 Oakbrook Center, Oak Brook. MAG’s city and suburban locations are part of...

This article has 24 other Chicago locations (Show)

Beacon Tavern, 405 N. Wabash Ave. I really like the blackened-redfish sandwich here, and it’s part of Beacon Tavern’s three-course lunch menu. Other dishes include an eggplant-parmigiana sandwich, Brussels sprouts-kale salad and clam chowder. Dinner and brunch menus also available.

Blackbird, 619 W. Randolph St. Four-star dining for $22; that’s the lure at Blackbird. Skimming through the menu...

Chez Joel, 1119 W. Taylor St. The three-course lunch menu is loaded with bistro classics, including moules frites, boeuf aux champignons, profiterole and creme brulee. Dinner menu also available.

Cindy’s, 12 S. Michigan Ave. Assuming it isn’t blizzarding, the glass-enclosed rooftop restaurant should offer beautiful Millennium Park views along with its lunch menu, which includes gnocchi parisienne and chocolate quesillo with maple-pecan ice cream.

Gene & Georgetti, 500 N. Franklin St. and 9421 W. Higgins Road, Rosemont. G&G’s city and suburban locations are part of CRW this year. The lunch menu includes a sirloin-steak sandwich, along with beet-orange salad, pistachio-crusted whitefish and tuxedo mousse cheesecake.

The Kitchen, 316 N. Clark St. Part of me wonders what “seasonal bruschetta” means in late January, but the rest of the lunch menu (turkey burger with Sriracha aioli, pasta bolognese, creme fraiche panna cotta) has me sold. Dinner menu also available.

Marisol, 205 E. Pearson St. The restaurant inside Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art has a lunch menu that includes the signature Marisol salad, porchetta sandwich and a veggie cheeseburger. And when you’re finished, you can wander around the museum for a while.

Pearl Brasserie, 180 N. Wacker Drive. The newest casual-French restaurant in the Loop makes its CRW debut with a three-course menu that includes tomato soup with mini grilled cheese, chicken milanese, prime burger and apple tart.

Portsmith, 660 N. State St. Decisions, decisions. The $22 lunch and $33 dinner both appeal (the latter has that upscale “fish and chips” dish I like), but the lunch menu offers “fried fish and waffle” with Dark Matter (local coffee) maple syrup, and that tips the scales for me. Eat early.

Booth One, 1301 N. State Parkway. Classic glamour is back at the former Pump Room, which is offering a four-course...

City Mouse, 311 N. Morgan St. Plenty of options for guests who try the three-course ($44) dinner menu: at least four choices per course (five entree options). Bring friends.

HaiSous, 1800 S. Carpenter St. A first-time participant, HaiSous was one of the best restaurants to open in 2017...

Lena Brava, 900 W. Randolph St. Rick Bayless’ open-fire restaurant joins the CRW club with a four-course ($44) menu that includes a vegetarian option in every course. In fact, the vegetarian dishes — including the superb grill-roasted pineapple with hazelnut salsa macha — all sound terrific.

The Loyalist, 177 N. Ada St. Last month, Bon Appetit ranked the Loyalist’s cheeseburger as one of the three best burgers in the nation. Said burger, along with the tempura-fried chicken sandwich and other treats, is part of the restaurant’s three-course ($33) dinner menu.

Margeaux Brasserie, 11 E. Walton St. Michael Mina’s gorgeous Parisian brasserie comes with Gold Coast prices, which makes the three-course ($33) dinner option (including smoked-salmon tartine, blanquette de veau and dark-chocolate pot de creme) especially attractive.

Mercat a la Planxa, 638 S. Michigan Ave. For a taste of Barcelona and other Spanish-inspired dishes, check out Mercat’s three-course ($44) menu of savory choices, including cannelloni stuffed with short rib and chicken, with a creamy foie gras and truffle bechamel.

Naha, 500 N. Clark St. Lunch is so popular during CRW that chef/owner Carrie Nahabedian routinely adds extra tables to the dining room. I prefer the relative quiet of the three-course dinner menu ($44), with dishes such as “popcorn” polenta with goat cheese and mushrooms.

Split-Rail, 2500 W. Chicago Ave. Dueling five-course ($44) menus at Split-Rail invite you to choose between menus inspired by “Seinfeld” (yes, there’s soup for you) and “Friends.” Each dish is listed with the episode that inspired it. A binge-watcher’s dream.

Tanta, 118 W. Grand Ave. The three-course ($44) menu includes Peruvian favorites, such as cebiche, lomo saltado and chihoakay marino.

Bad Hunter, 802 W. Randolph St. Not surprisingly, the lunch and brunch menus are heavily veggie-focused, though there is a...

Bar Siena, 832 W. Randolph St. Bar Siena offers lunch, dinner and brunch CRW menus, but I’m especially intrigued by...

Bistronomic, 840 N. Wabash Ave. Martial Noguier always rises to the CRW occasion. This year’s brunch menu is especially intriguing. The three-course menu is $22, or $39 with bottomless mimosas. (There’s an hour-and-a-half time limit on the elbow-bending.) Lunch and dinner menus also available.

Ella Elli, 1349 W. Cornelia Ave. A CRW newbie, the flashy Ella Elli offers dinner and brunch menus, the latter including poached-egg avocado toast, mushroom-artichoke quiche and stuffed brioche French toast.

Smoke Daddy, 1804 W. Division St. Like Remington, a 4 Star Restaurant Group property, also offering a “cocktail course” (bloody mary or mimosa) as part of its three-course brunch menu. Dishes include blueberry cornbread and pulled-pork Benedict. Lunch and dinner menus also available.

    Chicago Restaurant Week guide: Phil Vettel's list of best bets
    In 2008, Chicago's very first Restaurant Week featured 35 restaurants. The 11th annual Chicago Restaurant Week, which begins Jan. 26 and runs through Feb. 8 (yes, it lasts two weeks) boasts more than 370 city and suburban participants. I'd call that a success story.
