Italian | Oak Park, Near West

A friend who use to live near the Berwyn location introduced me to La Notte. Loved the fact that it is family owned and operated by father & son. I had not been to the new location. The food was delicious. Loved that the son recommended our wine and suggested some dishes which were out of this world. So glad they are in Oak Park. Will return and recommend !!! More

Bistro | Oak Park, Near West

Hemmingway’s Bistro is within walking distance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s studio and home which was why I chose it. We were in shorts and tees feeling a little underdressed, but the waitstaff assured us we were fine and by the time we finished our meal there were other similarly casual diners sprinkled among the more nicely dressed “ladies who lunch.” The restaurant is on the ground floor of an older apartment building so charming with an old fashioned feeling. The French-inspired menu was concise but with a nice variety of options across lighter and substantial choices and an extensive wine, beer and cocktails list. My husband had their daily special of cassoulet (which was enormous), my daughter their daily quiche (goat cheese and spinach) with a small side salad, while I had a blackened whitefish sandwich on a brioche bun with delectable pommes frites and a light salad. With tax and tip, our lunch for 3 and beverages (draft beer and a lovely French Bordeaux) came to $100 which was a splurge. Everything was well prepared, beautifully presented and the service was attentive and friendly. A very solid choice for a leisurely lunch with a retro European vibe. More
