Hai Yen Restaurant welcomes you to experience the essence of Vietnam in Chicago. From our famous Bo La Lot (marinated ground beef wrapped in a Hawaiian leaf then grilled), to the very traditional beef noodle soup (Pho), or exotic salads such as the Lotus Root Salad, to our fresh fruit smoothies with tapioca, we have everything to please any one's palate. <br><br> Vietnamese food consists of regional flavors with an infusion of French and Chinese cuisine. Our cuisine is incredibly healthy and is known as the cuisine of the dipping sauces. We use a lot of fresh vegetables and herbs, mainly for wrapping with different types of meat in a very thin, delicate rice paper with a dipping sauce on the side. At our restaurant, we allow you to join in on the fun of cooking Vietnamese food by letting you cook the food right at your own table with a fondue pot, soup pot or a grill. So stop by and create your own experience of Vietnam with us!

"We had a good Vietnamese meal at this storefront before Steep Theater. It was about two blocks south. The food was very well prepared and the menu was diverse. It was empty when we arrived but about half full when we left. We enjoyed the steamed sea bass, shrimp in lobster sauce and the appetizers. The crepes were outstanding."

What began as a humble commitment to represent dishes from South America now takes the Chicago area fish restaurants by storm with its medley of seafood, steaks, and chicken dishes with a tropical, Pan American feel in Highwood, IL. Our vision is to create a warm and vibrant restaurant with the focal point of serving fresh, generous, and healthy items prepared to perfection to wow our customers. Along with this lofty ideal is to provide Gluten Free dishes because we want only what’s best for our guests.

Step back in time to 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.
