Banish The Monday Blues With Budget-Friendly Options At Quartino



2We don't know about you, but Monday has us feeling kinda down — and broke, thanks to one too many social outings (or shopping excursions!). But there's no reason to wait until you get through another workweek stretch to have a little fun. And, since you have to eat dinner anyways, we suggest skipping the grocery store and heading over to Quartino instead. With new, dirt-cheap bottle Mondays and equally budget-friendly spring menu items, you can keep both your spirit and wallet in check.

Select "wines of the month" are just $10 per bottle (woot!), while new eats like house-made burrata pizza and a shaved spring vegetable salad with fresh herbs range from just $5 to $13 a pop. Of course, we can't deny what we're really looking forward to at this River North staple: The opening of its outdoor patio. All in good time, dear reader.

Quartino, 626 North State Street (at Ontario); 312-698-5000.
