Oak Brook offers residents and visitors an array of nearly 80 dining destinations, from fine dining to quick-serve restaurants. It has evolved into a dining mecca over several decades.

According to former Chicago Tribune Dining Critic Phil Vettel, a major reason is the proximity to downtown Chicago. “I had a ringside seat over 30 years watching name chefs located in Chicago,” he said. Chefs arrived from all parts of the country and the world, bringing their styles of cuisine with them—famous names like Rick Bayless and Charlie Trotter. Dining entrepreneurs like Rich Melman started in Chicago and grew his passion into nationally recognized Lettuce Entertain You restaurants.

With such close proximity to a dining magnet like Chicago, Oak Brook is a natural extension of the restaurant scene. As the home of Oakbrook Center, one of the most successful shopping centers in the country, along with various businesses and corporations based in the village, there is steady traffic. Meetings, conventions, and vacations also keep the restaurants bustling.

Oak Brook is a restaurant destination, but it can be combined with some fun and games. Puttshack offers mini-golf, Pinstripes offers bowling and bocce, and Game of Irons offers mini-golf, golf simulators, pool games, and arcade games.

Thanks to the Oak Brook Restaurant Association, Oak Brook Magazine has curated a local guide organized by cuisine and style. Enjoy them often. ■
