In 1967, Benny and Joy Leonardo decided it was time the world got a taste of the family’s Italian cooking, maybe with a side of prime-aged beef. They founded Mr. Benny’s Steak & Lobster House, an enduring fine dining establishment that dishes up fine meats and fresh seafood in hot, Italian-style entrees. They’ve changed locations and expanded over the years, but the fine eats the restaurant serves at its two locations maintain the same spirit as the original spot. In Matteson, chefs sling steaks in an almost entirely brick structure, the interior warmly lit by chandeliers and wall sconces. Outside the window, privacy bushes enclose a small garden of statuary. Meanwhile, the Mokena restaurant boasts hand-painted murals and a brick-laid patio for al fresco dining, as long as weather permits and the sun hasn’t retired to another galaxy.

Part tech-reliant med spa, part peaceful wellness center, Skin Bliss Health & Wellness Spa delivers results without losing sight of the client's experience of each treatment, which are overseen by medical providers. The vengeful beams of an IPL machine and radio frequency lasers rain down on acne and blemishes, and antioxidants and acids derived from fruits strip faces of dead skin cells during medical-grade chemical peels. In addition to cosmetic services, the center also treats clients to aromatherapy massages, sells nutritional supplements, and distributes healthy recipes.
