$45 -- Acclaimed Mediterranean Dinner for 2 w/Wine, 50% Off

Sold out - This deal was published February 25, 2013 and sold out March 10, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
Executive Chef of Fresco 21 Cameron Grant spent years cooking in Italy, notably at the Michelin-starred La Ciau del Tornavento. He brings that expertise to this Rosemont restaurant praised by the Daily Herald for its “fresh” offerings presented with “impeccable service.” Diners can savor a meal for two with drinks at this eatery inside the InterContinental Hotel for $45, regularly $101.

Why we love it

  • Fresco 21 offers "impeccable service" and "fresh Mediterranean yumminess" (Daily Herald)
  • This Mediterranean-themed spot earns 4 stars from OpenTable users
  • Located at the top-rated InterContinental Hotel of Rosemont
  • Complimentary valet parking is available

What's included

  • Take a seat in the "sophisticated" dining room, peruse the menu and select:
  • Any hot or cold tapas plate, salad or pizza to share as a first course; try the chef's daily selection of charcuterie, a margherita flatbread with fresh basil and mozzarella or the Herald-praised shrimp and leek cakes that are "the perfect warm bite"
  • Two entrees like the fettuccine pasta made fresh in-house topped with beef tenderloin and sausage ragu, or the citrus-encrusted ahi tuna that the Herald called "a hit" (up to $31 each)
  • Two drinks, including glasses of wine like a sparkling Spanish Raventos Cava or cocktail like the Thello, made with Campari, Disaronno, cognac and a splash of orange juice (up to $12 each)
  • Fresco 21 is located just minutes from both the Kennedy and Tri-State expressways, and a short trip from the Allstate Arena, making this a great option for pre-event dining, especially considering the complimentary valet parking. Bring a larger group for dinner and save even more -- four can dine for $79, regularly $202.

The food was great. Despite it being a very busy night there, the service was good. We enjoyed ourselves.

Food was good, nice ambiance.

Service was slow. Had to ask for bread - server said it was coming, but we had to finally grab a busboy and ask him to bring it. Food came out just at the point we were starting to get a bit upset. Other than that, all was good - and the server was very pleasant.

The experience was superb. Ivelina was the most wonderful server I have exerienced in years. She explained the menu options, the flavors and the wines that would be best with each choice. What a "jewel" Fresco21 has in this lady. The food was more than expected and the service from the crew was responsive and polite. We had the Pallia and the Halibut - SUPER! Wine was very good and we did it 2x. Had so much w/ the Apps and dinner we couldn't do desert. Great looking room and very busy around 8 pm. We'll be back to take some friends so they can see how a hotel restaurant/kitchen should be run. We had a great night and w/ Complimentary Parking - who could ask for more?

The food was very good. Portions extreme small for price, by tasted great.

Firstly, I tried to make reservations later than I had and they told me there was no availability,which impacted earlier family plans. When we showed up, the restaurant was half empty. Secondly, the menu hanged with no notice. Thirdly, the service was incredibly slow, especially since the place was half empty. I will not be returning to or recommending this restaurant.

Food was good (main courses great, apps and dessert okay)

Food was good but service was not what I would expect for this type of price range. Even with the voucher - which should have been a great deal we still ended up paying quite a bit extra. If we had been there without a voucher the price for 4 people to dine (with not a lot of alcohol) would have put the total around where our dinner checks at Capital Grill would be (located next door) yet this experience was no where near as well executed as a meal at Capital or other similar fine dinning establishments. We thought we would give it a try and the food was good - but I doubt we would go back.
