Highly Recommended ***** During our days of residing at The American complex in Highland Park, we heard many a resident talk about a dining spot “just down the street” by the Great Frame-Up, called Prairie Grass. Most of what they spoke about was making sure to [Read More]

North Branch Pizza & Burger

North Branch  Pizza & Burger

Mexican food that will warm your stomach and your heart!

Mexican food that will warm your stomach and your heart!

A NEW “IN” Spot in the city

A NEW “IN” Spot in the city

Highly Recommended **** Not being a part of the  “scene”, and having moved to the suburbs, we do not get to the new restaurants in the city as often as we would like to. Our theater schedule also prohibits waiting at the bar for a table. Last night, we did get [Read More]

“Devon-Oakbrook Style”

“Gourmet Burgers, Pizza and More”

Highly Recommended **** Take a trip down Western Avenue, a few blocks South of Peterson and you will see a familiar building with  new signage. Since 1957, the building located at 5754 N. Western was home to Max’s Beef, the pride of Larry and Randee Estes. While it [Read More]

Off the “MAG MILE” you will find a different Devon.

Off the “MAG MILE” you will find a different Devon.

Highly Recommended ***** While there are not a great number of theaters on or near Michigan Avenue, there are two of note and often, when attending these, we end up doing the food court at Water Tower Place. While it is not a bad choice allowing for lots of unique tastes to [Read More]

Our world has changed. Cuba is now a destination for travelers and Cubans can visit their “homeland” again to see their long separated families. Meanwhile, several Cuban eateries have come into the Chicago Restaurant Scene. Some, like 90 Miles, have been around [Read More]
