northwest suburbs - hoffman, barrington area
Only two places come to mind for fine dining in that area.
Barn of Barrington is very nice and has a good wine list but is only open Wed- Sun. The Millrose Restaurant in S.
Barrington is also very nice but not so much fine dining.
Not to far in Schaumburg is Chicago Prime Steakhouse which is very good and a new place that I have not been to yet but heard good things is Entourage also in Schaumburg.
