While they may be known for their great steaks, lounge-like atmosphere and warm hospitality, in recent years, Tortoise Supper Club (TSC) has also become a destination for discerning martini drinkers in search of the high quality.  The skilled bartenders at Tortoise have developed a reputation for perfecting the art of martini making – and that’s something worth celebrating!


Beginning Monday, July 17th, the River North restaurant will host their first annual Martini Week – a seven day celebration of the classic libation.  With the purchase of any entrée at lunch or dinner, guests can enjoy a premium vodka martini (made with Ketel One) or gin martini (made with Broker’s Gin) for only $3.95 each.  Diners can elect to have their martini made any way they want (shaken or stirred, dirty or straight up, with a twist, an olive or an onion) and are welcome to order as many as they want (each additional martini will still only be $3.95!)


Tortoise Supper Club’s inaugural Martini Week will run through Sunday, July 23rd.  TSC is located at 350 N. State St. in Chicago, IL.
