Early dinner in Des Plaines

Looking for a restaurant in downtown Des Plaines(somewhere near Lee and Miner?) to have an early dinner on a Monday night before a production at Stage One. Any cuisine ok, but would like to have a nice atmosphere and enjoy a good glass of wine with the meal. Any suggestions?

  1. Dung Gia Vietnamese is just around the corner from Stage One; Dotombori Japanese is a block and a half away at Lee & Miner; Oliveti Italian is on Ellinwood Street; there is also a Leona's, Lalo's, and a Cheeseburger in Paradise downtown if you decide to go more casual. If it were a Thursday-Saturday I would definitely direct you to Via Roma italian on Lee Street.

      Oh, and Thai Square is also around the corner from Stage One and pretty good. I'm not sure which of these places serve wine, but I know several are BYOB and there is a supermarket a half-block from Stage One.
