Thank you for your interest in Emilio’s Tapas. Emilio’s Tapas is an authentic Spanish Tapas Bar Restaurant conveniently located in West Suburban Hillside. Spanish cuisine can best be described as a mix of French and Italian influences; tapas are small dishes ideal for appetizers or when ordered in rounds build a complete meal. Our menu consists of regional Spanish specialties, original dishes created by Emilio offered in both the dining room and bar for dinner daily. The restaurant is casual with spacious dining rooms and an energetic atmosphere accentuated by colorful Spanish murals, music and tiles.<br />

mk The Restaurant celebrated 15 years of casual fine dining with unrivaled hospitality this past November. We have renovated our bar, lounge, and dining room and Chef Erick and his team have a beautiful new mid-winter menu along with a small bite menu available only in the bar and lounge. Our new bar features window seating and more than 60 new craft spirits to choose from. Our private dining room with its skyline views is suitable for all of your catering and special event needs. <br /><br />Come in and experience for yourself why Food & Wine magazine said,“Windy City diners are blown away by mk."<br />

The first restaurant in Western Springs to serve liquor since prohibition, Vie offers guests the opportunity to experience urban fine dining in a warm, relaxed village setting. Conveniently located steps from the Metra station, Vie attracts food-conscious diners from the entire Chicagoland area. Guests will find sanctuary in the intimate, gracious dining room housed in a two-story red brick building in the center of Norman Rockwell’s Americana. Chef Virant’s cuisine reflects the seasons, local harvests and the world becoming a smaller place. While the menu celebrates artisanal foods and local family farms, it also takes advantage of the increased availability of specialty foods from across the globe. Vie features Seasonal Contemporary American cuisine inspired by Western European cultures and rustic fare. Virant elevates familiar dishes by relying on the simplicity of a few, high-quality ingredients.

The redesign of the award-winning dining room of Chicago's Magnificent Mile offers a comfortable, more approachable atmosphere. Chef Ryan LaRoche is committed to offering locally sourced ingredients, and presents a seasonally changing innovative menu that is more accessible, contemporary & diverse. NoMI Kitchen is based on the idea that the kitchen is the center of the home, where family and friends gather, an everyday occasion place. <br /><br /><br /><br><br><br />Ryan LaRoche’s continued presence in the open kitchen, and the more comfortable dining room, impeccable service provided by the approachable staff, allows diners to experience the best of the innovative local menu and a Chicago showplace.<br /><br><br><br />

Siena Tavern will bring the sophistication and charisma of Viviani’s cuisine as well as the energy of a bustling bar, to the epicenter of Chicago’s dining scene in River North. Combining Fabio’s crowd-pleasing made-from-scratch menu with DineAmic’s success in the hospitality sphere, Siena Tavern offers diners an experience that is simultaneously comfortable, vibrant and social as well as polished. Located at 51 W. Kinzie Street, (intersection of Kinzie & Dearborn) in the heart of Chicago’s River North neighborhood, SienaTavern becomes the fourth hospitality concept from DineAmic Group, which currently owns and operates the highly successful Public House and Bull & Bear properties.

Davanti Enoteca is a rustic Small Plates Italian Wine Bar. It features a large lounge area, main dining room as well as a private party room which can accommodate up to 40 guests. The center of the main dining room features an authentic pizza oven where guests can observe hand made pizzas being prepared by our talented pizza makers. The comfortable rustic setting features lots of wood, brick, and classic lighting with an incredible sound system for our guests to enjoy.

"Don't expect actual Italian food here! The liver pate tasted more like mustard than anything liver. The bruschetta did not have any tomato or basil, but did have chickpea paste (aka hummus) and burnt pancetta. The DOC pizza lacked ingredients and flavor, but they served the salt and oregano on the side! The meats and cheeses were a nightmare to order! None of the cheeses have an actual cheese type, just a brand and what source of milk. So, asking for a Taleggio, I got something more creamy than a Brie and another which was a Parmesan ... and no bread - that was extra $! My prosciutto came served with pomegranate juice and seeds on top. And the dessert said that it had a biscotti base, but it was more like a rice krispie! :-("
