Rosemount?

My DH is attending a conference in Rosemount in October. Where does one eat? We will have a vehicle, however he will be spending 12 or more hours per day in meetings and so we likely won't go too far.
Thanks!

    Rosemont is close to O'Hare Airport and has a lot of convention business, hotels and offices. Unfortunately, this means too many restaurants are rather corporate. You might start looking at these threads:

    Rosemont is also close to both the Edison Park neighborhood of Chicago and the suburb of Park Ridge.

      From these links, I can provide two personal recommendations:

      Flamingo's Seafood (Mexican) is well worth a visit.

      Topa in Elk Grove is a place where we dine frequently. I am always quite happy with their appetizers, salads and fish offerings, whereas my wife is frequently delighted with their steaks. http://www.toparestaurant.com/Welcome...

      I have not eaten at Rosewood in Rosemont, but it is operated by the same family involved with Topa.

      If your husband is spending 12 hours/day in meetings, does that mean that YOU can head elsewhere for lunch (or even dinner)? Downtown is only about an hour away via the blue line.

      I guess my point is that I understand that your husband might not want to venture out after a long day of meetings, but there's no need for you to be stuck out in Rosemont if you don't want to be out there.

        thanks all for the suggestions....i will do a little homework here shortly and check out all these links.
        rubinow...i have ABSOLUTELY no intention of staying in Rosemount all day...I'll definitely be elsewhere for lunch.

          Well, we have returned from Rosemont & I thought I should report back. We tried Flamingo's on our first night and had a fantastic meal...my DH is still talking about it. I think he has been dreaming about the salsa. The second night we ate at the hotel (Hyatt Rosemont) and although it was late, we were tired and in a hurry, we had a decent burger that certainly exceeded my expectations. For lunches, we tried Udupi Palace for dosa (delish) and NoMI. Overall, a great trip. Thanks for all the recommendations - we look forward to returning next year.
