OCA Greater Chicago is planning an AAPI Restaurants Week for May 13-22, 2022 during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month to feature AAPI-owned restaurants.
We are not charging restaurants to be listed as a participating restaurant. Restaurants may choose to offer a discount or prix fixe menu or donate a percentage of the proceeds to a cause of their choice, but there is no obligation to offer any special deals.
We would love to feature as many AAPI-owned restaurants in the Chicago area as possible. Our aim is not to incur additional cost for restaurants but to get people to explore the many AAPI-owned restaurants in the Chicago area.
As of 11/23/21, 43 AAPI-owned restaurants offering the following cuisines have expressed interest in participating:
Chinese, Sushi, French, Cantonese, Asian, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Indian-Latin fusion, Malaysian, Peranakan, Filipino, Chocolate, Thai, Korean, American, Empanadas, Seafood, Nepalese, Indian, Pizza, South and South East Asian street food, Dosa, Sichuan, Peking duck, Jianbing, Bubble tea, Vietnamese coffee, Wings, Chinese barbecue
We’re excited! We hope to add more restaurants and more cuisines. Choice is good!
Stay tuned for more details
