where to eat dinner in Park Ridge?
I am meeting with two friends for dinner tomorrow in Park Ridge. None of us have gone there before. (We're meeting there b/c it's the midway point for the three of us.) Suggestions for dinner? One friend has conservative taste buds so no Japanese, Mexican, Greek, Chinese, etc for her. She prefers American or Italian. Even chains like Maggianos would be fine. Thanks!
Just down Oakton Street from Park Ridge is the Black Ram. (Technically, it's in Des Plaines, but it's just on the other side of the forest preserve from Park Ridge.) It's a steakhouse type of restaurant. All of the food there is absolutely GREAT - the steaks, the seafood, the desserts, everything. Attire is casual to business casual. You can view prices on the menus on their website. It doesn't get a lot of press, but it gets a lot of repeat business. The proprietor greets lots of arriving guests by name. If you would enjoy a great steakhouse (and seafood) restaurant that nobody ever heard of, this is it.

I see that this question was posted a while ago but had to reply! :-) I live in Park Ridge and my absolute favorite restaurant is Pi'ano, Pi'ano on Busse Hwy. It is GREAT italian food!! My husband and I usually get a fish special and the Giambotta!
