Experience Tuscan cuisine at vibrant and lively Coco Pazzo Café, sister restaurant of the more formal Coco Pazzo. Just steps away from Magnificent Mile shopping, Northwestern Hospital, Prentice Hospital and the Rehabilitation Institute, the Café offers a casual atmosphere with a sophisticated menu and multiple wines by the glass. Enjoy the warmth of the Modigliani inspired murals, theatrical flower arrangements and the copper topped bar which is available for dining. And, when the weather allows, choose a seat on the comfortable patio. Coco Pazzo Café has been voted by Chicago Zagat readers as one of the finest alfresco restaurants in town

"Four of us went for dinner. We arrived early so we had a seat in the bar & ordered a bottle of wine. Delicious Italian wines are by the glass or bottle. We were seated a the table & served a bread basket with two kinds of bread. Each of us had a salad then an entree. We all enjoyed our meals (salmon, lazagna. rizzotto). For dessert we had coffee & split a wonderful pastaccio semifreddo. The service, food, drink & dessert were all perfect! We will return again."

The newest Mercadito locations are the chicest and most modern additions to the restaurant family. Ample sized banquets accommodate large parties while smaller white quartzite tables and the soft wood floor and ceiling keep the atmosphere cozy. Exquisite details include rope screens separating banquettes, handmade pyramid-shaped copper lights illuminating the bar, and unique graffiti-style murals dressing the dining rooms. A massive bar area and lounge lets guests relax while taking in the stylish and upscale environment.

"Flaming drinks & small plates for sharing. Tables are extremely close to each other, table space not enough for sharing plates & rather loud. The food & service were very good though."

HUB 51 is the River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago's social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.

"We started with a bottle of wine & the wedge salad. The new cheddar rolls with honey butter are exceptional. I had the Surf & Turf (Filet & Fried Shrimp), my husband had the Scallops & Rissotto then we added the Potato & Sage Grautin side to share. All of the food was delicious! The potato side was so flavorful. For dessert we had coffee & the Chocolate Lava Cake with Hazelnut Ice Cream. Our server Paul was very attentive. We will be back very soon! The evening was just a great dinning experience."

Step back in time when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Located South of 159th on LaGrange Road in Orland Park, Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery has become the destination for award winning, handcrafted beers, quality American cuisine and friendly energetic service. Rock Bottom is the perfect place if you are looking to watch the big game in our large bar area, have dinner with friends in our dining room or enjoy a beautiful evening on one of our two patios.

Pristine seafood & prime steaks. The freshest and best available is delivered twice daily to complement our world famous Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse steaks. Crab cakes, frog legs, and new favorites highlight our new menu. Live blues in the bar nightly.

"We usually like Rockbottom. Our food was just okay this time. They seated us by the kitchen & in the end booth. We had to listen to the staff yelling "corner" every time they walked into the kitchen (which was non-stop). The ventilation is poor so we left smelling of food. The flat bread pizza was not flatbread at all & the ingredients were just thrown on (some pieces had no cheese, tomatoe or basil). The burger was just fair ~ nothing special."

"We go here for lunch often. We both had the tenderloin sliders with horseradish sauce which were fantastic. They are served with a side item such as french fries, sweet potato fries, or a side salad. Always very good food & service."
