Gift for Someone in Glenview

  • t

I live out of the area, but wish to send a thank you to a friend in Glenview. I'd like to get them a gift certificate for a good restuarant in their area. I was given 2 names, Va Pensiero and Gabriel's. Any opinion on these? Would a dinner at these places be a "special occasion" that would make a good gift?

Any insight or other recommendations would be most sincerely appreciated. Thanks, Tony

  1. yes, either of these would be a special occasion place.

    Va Pensiero is in Evanston and specializes in Italian food. Gabriel's is in Highwood, and I'd call it more of a "continental cuisine" place. I think Gabriel's is more expensive, but you can do damage at either.
