What is upscale dining? It doesn't mean expensive it means the establishment offers a unique menu, attentive staff, an excellent wine list and ambiance. A cloth napkin is usually involved as well! Most likely a chain restaurant will not be one of our venues.
What types of establishments might be involved? Could be Trulucks in Rosemont or Granite City in Naperville, perhaps Villagio in Roselle. Steak lovers could nominate Mortons or Capital Grille and, of course, Gibsons; we won't do Lone Star or Outback. Ivy in Wheaton, Tall Grass in Lemont or Hugo's in Naperville. Maybe even Pilot Pete's in Schaumburg or PF Changs in Lombard. In the mood for fusion, RockSugar in Oak Brook is a great one! Couples or singles over 45 would be your table mates!
Plan is the first weekend of each month. Either Friday or Saturday night for dinner or Sunday for brunch. You will always have plenty of time to decide if you can join us as well as information about the restuarant.
We will try to be as inclusive as possible choosing restaurants with vegan and gluten free options. Admittedly, not every event will be appropriate for everyone due to timing, menu, budget, etc.
