Trying to Remember the Name of a Restaurant--Northern Suburb

suebro Jun 6, 2009 02:54 PM

I am racking my brain to remember the name of a restaurant I ate at about 6 or 7 years ago. It was in one of the northern suburbs---and I think it was on Waukegan Rd, maybe in Northbrook or nearby.

It seems like the owner was into Harleys. I thought the name of the place was "That Place" or something like that.

I remember it being good and reasonable.

I know this is all kinda vague, but wondering if it strikes a bell with anyone.

    Possibly Norton's (as in Norton motorcycles - lots of pictures on the wall) in Highland Park - great burgers.

      Might it be the Highland House that was near US41 and Rt 22? It closed a few years back, but def. drew a motorcycle crowd. They would mass in the parking lot on weekends before heading to the countryside.

        What kind of food? Any other details would help.

            Nope--that's not it. It was definitely a dinner place.

              Was it Next Door Bistro? That is in Northbrook. They have a little restaurant with murals of people on the wall. They have unbelievable chicken with leaks and fresh made potato chips.
