Emilio runs a small restaurant empire that introduced Spanish tapas to the Chicago area. The most elegant version is Meson Sabika in Naperville. While the food here in Wheaton was similar, the decor wasn't as elegant, nor was the service more than pleasantly harried. Comfortable for a casual tasty meal -- but not for an "event".
Favorite Dish: Seared tuna "carpaccio" with ginger-fruit relish and toast points.
40 years of Wheatonians can't be wrong! That's how long this ice cream emporium has been dishing it out on Front St. Outside benches give patrons a place to sit in warmer weather as they devour their goodies:)
Favorite Dish: Don't miss the chocolate peanut butter ice cream!
You can't get much here except crepes, but oh what crepes! They will bring back your memories of Paris...
Favorite Dish: My favorite is the spicy coconut shrimp crepe. They even have a Peanut Butter & Jelly crepe for the younger set.
