Eclectic ingredients, including eel and mint leaf, fill more than 30 maki rolls and helped earn Wildfish a spot on Gayot's list of the 10 best Chicago sushi restaurants in 2012. One roll pairs spicy salmon, fried tuna, and pico de gallo, and another mixes spicy mayo and sweet soy sauce with Alaskan king crab and a splash of Bacardi 151. Filet mignon and lobster sizzle in the tropical-hued dining room with walls of red, green, and gold and bamboo that sways against the ceiling. Glasses of imported Japanese beer and sake clink together in high-backed booths that offer privacy during dates and meals out with a parrot that only knows how to say your medical records.

The original Dear Franks location in Deerfield flung open its doors back in 1978 and has served the same quality dogs, burgers, and fries ever since, only now at two additional locations in Niles and Glenview. Charred Vienna Beef hot dogs drag through a garden of traditional Chicago-style toppings, and freshly cut, double-crisped fries are draped in creamy wisconsin sharp cheddar. Italian-beef sandwiches, tuna melts, and assorted sausages also assuage cravings for comfort food, as do chocolate malts and teddy bears stuffed with foie gras.

Stowed away inside the seven-story atrium of the Embassy Suites Chicago North Shore rests Cadwell's Grille, an upscale restaurant helmed by Executive Chef John Grosskopf. A Cooking Academy of Chicago graduate, Chef Grosskopf has created menus and recipes for several fine dining restaurants in the Chicago area. For the Cadwell’s Grille menu, Grosskopf puts a contemporary spin on American classics by stuffing meatloaf with white-cheddar-chive mashed potatoes, frying french fries in truffle oil, and crowning burgers with gourmet ingredients such as chipotle aioli and warm bacon vinaigrette. Each dish is plated delicately on white serving ware, allowing diners to clearly see the components of each entree and celebrity faces in each swirl of dipping sauce.

The chefs are known to sometimes stray from the traditional playbook, as they do with the honey-nut granola-encrusted Deerfield french toast.

Sandwiches can be paired with sides such as a New Orleans–style olive salad, Lay's potato chips, or Carol's giant cookies, each of which is stamped with Paul Bunyan's giant seal of approval.
