Owner and chef Bob Airdo—a veteran of upscale hotel kitchens such as Chicago's Ritz-Carlton—leads a team of culinary savants as they infuse Vincitori's menu of upscale Italian dishes with unique style. Classic offerings include handcrafted pasta dishes, which arrive tossed in creamy or wine-infused sauces, and the menu is also peppered with intriguing flavor combinations such as potato skins stuffed with cheese, pancetta, and sundried tomato pesto. Hot giardiniera peppers, prosciutto, and other Italian toppings perform folk dances atop thin-crust pizzas, and seafood, steaks, and meaty plates make a strong showing as they arrive trimmed with vegetables or atop saucy slip 'n' slides.

Diners savor their plates beneath ambient pendant lights in the warmly painted dining room, which is adorned with vino artwork to complement the pours of fine wine coming from the granite-topped bar. The lounge fills with live entertainment starting at 7 p.m. most Fridays and Saturdays, and Vincitori also hosts banquets and caters for weddings, graduations, and long theme-park lines.

Built to evoke the spirit of an open-air European marketplace, Standard Market celebrates the possibilities of fresh, artisanal foods. Thanks to relationships with small farmers and producers throughout the Midwest, the shelves stay stocked with products that are either grown or crafted within 300 miles of the store. Even the selection of more than 200 cheeses favors American products, a fact that appealed to the Chicagoist when it named Standard Market one of the five best cheese shops In Chicago.

This local fare appears alongside items imported from abroad, but the freshest products of all are the ones made in-house. In the bakery, staff prepare more than 35 kinds of artisan breads from scratch every morning. Elsewhere, butchers dry-age beef, make their own sausages, and smoke their own bacon. The display cases even showcase pastas made from scratch with a pasta machine imported from Italy via giant slingshot.

In addition to celebrating artisanal ingredients, Standard Market also features a casual grill area where visitors can enjoy a quick meal made using the same meats and produce found on the shelves. Hearty burgers, hand-tossed pizzas, and meal-sized salads help keep hunger pangs at bay before visitors move on to inspect the shop's selection of more than 500 wines and 150 beers from every corner of the world.

There's not a bad seat in the house at Bakersfield. Out on the patio, groups can kick back by the fireplace, huddle around the fire pit, or congregate at the communal table. Inside, there's a wine room with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, but it's the elevated chef's table that really steals the show. From this lofty vantage point, diners can watch as chefs bustle around a wood-fired grill sizzling with aged steaks from sister grocer Standard Market, organic chicken from FreeBird, and craft-raised salmon from Skuna Bay. Bakersfield's elegance and attention to detail earned it positive buzz after it opened in 2012. The Chicago Sun-Times called it a "refreshing newcomer to Westmont" and praised the prime rib as "tender and flavorful and meticulously well-trimmed of extraneous fat." ABC 7 featured the spot for its creative takes on chicken—including a cobb salad whose poultry morsels are dredged in Japanese panko breadcrumbs, and fried chicken designed to be devoured with a knife and fork.
