Eddie Merlot"s Prime-aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef and the freshest seafood. Eddie Merlot's has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 75 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot's boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

"Went to lunch with my boss and two other coworkers and the three of them had never been to Eddie Merlot's before. Here are the only things brought to my attention.
The Shrimp Cocktail sauce is very spicy.
French Onion Soup- The cheese was kinda coated into the soup as such.
Carrot Cake- The frosting was extremely heavy on the cake as such.
Overall our lunch was excellent and these were minor complaints in a five star dining establishment.
My boss loved it so he brought a platinum membership card.

Traveling 8000 miles together from the city of Chongqing in China, our two chef partners and our operating partner developed plans years ago to open a Chinese and Japnese restaurant together combining all their skills, in Chinese cuisine, and Japanese techniques. They partnered with ex-lettuce entertain you partner and veteran restauranteur Ed Culleeney (Ben Pao, currently pl8 in Barrington) 8000 Miles menu will be comprised of Chinese and Japanese small plates like tuna avocado sumiso and hand grenades with traditional items as crab rangoon and sichuan spicy dumplings. Main dishes will be combined from the two other restaurants (TL's Four Seasons and PL8) like chong ching noodle soup, dried chili chicken, thai basil shrimp, black pepper garlic beef to list a few. Sushi will be a highlight with maki rolls featuring triple k.c., sakura roll, snow crab roll, fireworks salmon and crunchy lobster, with additional sashimi and nigiri. A great bar with many specialty drinks to please.

"Had lunch and everything when I am here at lunch it seems like it is slow. Chris (my waiter) did a great job. Some lunch prices can be HIGH especially for Batavia."

Francesca’s Vicinato is the 12th restaurant in "The Family of Francesca Restaurants." Open since July 2003, Francesca's Vicinato brings to Palos Park and the surrounding area a restaurant with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, simple cooking, friendly service and fair prices. The menu features the zesty earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. <br /><br />The menu changes almost daily, but always offers a tempting selection of appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, fresh fish, veal and chicken preparations. Their extensive wine list includes carefully selected Italian and Californian wines that will complement your meal perfectly.

"I went to Sunday Brunch and found the brunch to be very nice and well set up. The crab and the shrimp were excellent. My only complaint would be the prime rib was a little tough as such. Maybe a cheesecake or key lime pie as such might be nice for the dessert table. I was sent a text for $10 to try it. If I had to pay $39.95 I probably would not do it."
