Chicago-- dinner near O'Hare


Recommended Posts

Here's a Rosemont thread, although most posts are 1½+ years old and the content pretty much strayed over to Thai food.

There's a Gibsons Steakhouse and a Giordano's (Chicago-style pizza) in Rosemont.

It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Staying at Marriott on Higgins Ave in Rosemont near O'Hara airport. Want a place for dinner -- taxi ride away. Good food, nice wine- does not have to be over the top, but good enough for a foodie!

I'd go to Carlucci on River Road. Not far. Good food, fine wine list.

Here's the website for Carlucci in Downers Grove; the site for the Rosemont branch (www.carluccirosemont.com/) isn't showing up.

Yup, those would be my top two picks nearby. The hotel is on Higgins near Cumberland. Giordano's is about a mile west of the hotel on Higgins at River Road, and Gibson's is maybe half a mile south of Giordano's on River Road. If you go to Giordano's, get the "stuffed" deep-dish pizza. You can phone ahead with your pizza order to avoid waiting 30-45 minutes while seated for the pizza to bake. If you enjoy seafood, there's also a McCormick and Schmick's just south of Gibson's.

Right next to the hotel is a shared location of Al's Beef, for Italian beef sandwiches, and Nancy's Pizza, for stuffed deep-dish pizza, whose address is shown as Park Ridge on their website. I haven't had either at this particular location, and I've heard at least one negative report about it.

If you're willing to take a longer (10-15 minutes) cab ride for more "foodie-worthy" food you won't find back home, consider Flamingo's Seafood in Mount Prospect, for creative Mexican seafood. If you don't want to spend the $$$ for the cab, you can also get there on the Pace #606 bus, which goes right past the hotel (and originates in the parking lot of the Cumberland station on the CTA Blue Line, about a 3-minute walk from the hotel), then stops at Algonquin and Busse, about a hundred feet from the restaurant. For a bus schedule, map, and other info, click here.

You can also take the CTA Blue Line from the Cumberland station into the city, to places such as Smoque near the Irving Park stop for barbecue, Lula near the Logan Square stop for local/seasonal cuisine, The Real Tenochtitlan near the Logan Square stop for Mexican, Spring near the Damen stop for contemporary seafood, and of course all the great places in downtown Chicago.
