Re:Oak Park, Illinois
Thanks, folks, for all of your recommendations--here and in various PMs. We wound up going to the Depot American Diner for breakfast, and the sausage gravy with biscuits (and poached eggs) was a big hit. After a couple of hours or three of Frank Lloyd Wright, we went to the Marion Street Cheese Market for a light lunch. The "Midwest Tour" cheese sampler really hit the spot. We didn't get a chance to go to Johnny's, Riviera Italian Foods, or any of the other places recommended, but I hope to go back to the Oak Park area this summer and do kind of a daytrip food tour. Perhaps other Roadfooders will be interested in joining in?
Anyhow, thanks for the recs!
