Prasino is an eco-friendly restaurant in the Chicagoland area that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The name of the restaurant is the Greek word for green which is at the heart of the restaurant's mission - to provide healthy food at an affordable price in a modern, environmentally conscious setting. <br /><br />Prasino emphasizes seasonal, local, and organic food whenever possible. Its commitment to sustainability is incorporated in Prasino's eco-chic design. <br />

"My husband and I love this restaurant and have been here many times. We wanted to go out to eat for Valentine's Day as a family so we brought our 2 young sons with us this time. Our experience was just as great as it usually is; the food and drinks were fantastic and the wait staff very friendly and attentive. And our boys now love this place as much as we do and are already talking about what they'll order the next time we go there for dinner."

"This is one of our favorite local restaurants to eat at because the food is so fresh and well-made, we don't feel overstuffed when we leave. We eat the same amount that we would anywhere else, but we don't have that icky feeling when we're done like we would at a restaurant that prepares food the Standard American Diet way. We always always always get the Killer Dragon sushi as an appetizer because it is out of this world fantastic. As for dinners, you pretty much can't go wrong. I can't recall a meal my husband and I have not liked. Our server this time was just okay - not great, but not awful either; she just didn't add anything to our experience. The food (and excellent drinks) is really what brings us back time and time again."

"We go to the Chew Chew every Christmas Eve for dinner because it is that special a place. The food is always fantastic, the drinks are always spectacular, it's always beautifully decorated around the holidays, and the service is always amazing. This year was no exception. It's one of our favorite places to eat!"

"After a long day of Christmas shopping, my husband and I went to Reel Club for dinner. The food was fantastic, the drinks were excellent, and the service was over-the-top amazing. We've been to this restaurant numerous times and loved it just about every time. But this visit was by far the best. Kudos to Reel Club for their great food, wonderful drinks, and the exceptional service from their wait staff."
