Cluck collaboration at Honey Butter Fried Chicken
Order the fried chicken Flammwich—a spin on the Maxwell Street Polish made with fried chicken strips, caramelized onions, sport peppers, and mustard seeds served on a soft bun—and the restaurant will donate $1 from the $11 price tag to Pilot Light's efforts to help kids make healthier food choices. Designed by Spiaggia owner and Top Chef winner Joe Flamm, the sandwich is available through July 15.

Rigatoni at Trattoria Gianni

Thirtieth anniversary menu at Trattoria Gianni
Try this family-run restaurant's house-made rigatoni with sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, olive oil, garlic, and basil in a cream sauce—a dish that's been on the menu since 1988—as part of a $30 dinner that also includes a house salad and a glass of Sicilian wine. The special is offered through the end of the year, so you can come in multiple times to try other entrees, including chicken breast sautéed with white wine, lemon, and capers.

Cover is $10 and the events run from 6 to 8 p.m.
