Oak Brook Restaurants
Hi, visiting Oak Brook in the near future on business. I don't know yet if I'll have a car. I am interested in any fresh, different, unique, ethnic, etc., restaurants that I might be able to make my way to cheaply. Thanks!
That address is katty-corner to the Oak Brook Center - an upscale (outdoor) shopping mall. There are plenty of restaurants in the mall but none that I'd describe as unique, etc. Here is the link to the mall's food directory, http://www.oakbrookcenter.com/dining-.... Of the restaurants listed, the best are probably Antico Posto, Mon Ami Gabi, and Wildfire.
Outside of the mall, within a block or 2 are a Ditka's steakhouse and Tuscany, an Italian restaurant (part of a small local chain). Again, not unique or ethnic.
For unique & ethnic, you'll need a car -- e.g., to drive a few miles to Westmont which has some Indian restaurants as well a hole-in-the wall Chinese noodle & dumpling place called Katy's.
