This Addison location hits the mark with a comfortable setting, good seafood, and cold martinis.

There were seven of us and nobody had the same dish, so that should tell you there’s something for everyone here. The freshly squeezed orange juice is a real treat, and a perfect accompaniment for the California Benedict, with its artichokes, sliced avocado, and tomatoes. You also can’t go wrong…

Addison Cafe

Being in business for 35 years is a good indicator of doing things right in the restaurant business. This small, charming space, with its crystal chandelier, fresh roses, and calm atmosphere, is a prime destination for a romantic dinner. Think a leek-and-shallot-filled five-onion soup graced with thyme and luscious strings…

Osteria PaneVino

This casual spot is very popular, with its inviting wine-bar vibe and wide-ranging menu of reasonably priced Italian favorites. Pastas, wood-oven-roasted meat and seafood, and pizzas populate the menu; we liked the Pizza di Carne, the chewy crust generously laden with fresh tomato sauce, Italian sausage, veal meatballs, and pepperoni.

Veal osso buco requires loving attention, and it certainly gets that here: our bowl was filled simply with the bone and its marrow, exceedingly tender meat, and copious amounts of gravy—what a glorious dish! One look at the tiramisu told us that this also came from a trove of Sicilian…

There is always a wait at this colorful strip-mall spot, whose loyal clientele come for the bounty of noodle and curry dishes (if you’re up for it, the massaman curry with shrimp and avocado will for sure jumpstart the metabolism). For dessert, try the tasty floating rice cake in ganache…

Nate’s Seafood & Steakhouse

We’re suspicious of whoever decided on the pink-and-purple scheme of this kid-friendly eatery, but at least it’s easy to find. We munched on a small dish of complimentary garlic bread and hush puppies while trying to pick from the many choices here. Ultimately we went with a bowl of gumbo…

Neighborhood Services

Let’s be honest: Nick Badovinus has the Midas touch. This new location, in Addison, is already doing land-office business. Slices of sourdough baguette slices slathered with pimento cheese, thinly sliced smoked ham, and accents of arugula were perfect for sharing. And we were happy to have the opportunity to sample…

Taste of Chicago

We almost hate to tell you how much we enjoy this place, because the wait for a table is long enough. And on top of that, the deep-dish pizzas (which can easily feed four people) take about 45 minutes to prepare. But it’s worth the wait to indulge in a…
