NYE Hotspots in Western Suburbs of Chicago

eliza22 Dec 16, 2009 05:37 PM

Hi, My husband and I are looking for a great restaraunt with great food to ring in the New Year this year. THere will be a group of our friends with us. We are hoping to have a nice dinner and then head home for midnight. However, we are looking for something more than the usual "dinner and drinks". We have thought of Japenese Steakhouses, Brazilian Steakhouses and Tapas. Can someone please recommend something fun for a group of friends with great food in the western Suburbs??? Lombard, Oakbrook, Downers Grove, Naperville, Heck we could even head towards Schaumburg or Algonquin or Dekalb even-lol.
Any ideas would be great-THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!!

    Two of the best restaurants in the western suburbs have special dinners planned for New Year's Eve. You can read about them on their websites:

    Courtright's (in Willow Springs) - http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs012/1102621924081/archive/1102853599550.html

    There are lots more NYE listings at:

      Not sure if they have anything special on NYE, but you might want to call and ask: Churrasco Brazilian Steakhouse (5141 W. North Ave., Villa Park 630-832-0877 The owners are Brazilian and Brazilians like to party. Food is excellent, both appetizer table and grilled meats. We've eaten there several times and found the food and service to be excellent.

          Note - Nia is in the Randolph Corridor of the West Loop, just west of downtown Chicago, and is quite a distance from the western suburbs where the OP is seeking recommendations.
