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.

      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.

      What kind of food? Any other details would help.

        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.

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