Chef David Maish trained at Chicago's Washburne Trade School, worked corporate events and banquets, and cooked at casual dining restaurants before opening the first David's Bistro in 1997. That Des Plaines location was open for nearly a decade, and after a brief break from business, David reopened his namesake restaurant in 2009, this time in Antioch. At the new location, David stresses the importance of hospitality and employs a knowledgeable wait staff, as highlighted by NBC5's Street teamer, Hungry Z, who said, "Chef David goes out of his way to ensure his staff knows the menu as well as he does."
The menu features a lot of the same contemporary American recipes David prepared at his last restaurant, such as the maple-glazed salmon. But the number of dishes has expanded to include more international ones, such as new zealand lamb chops, as well as vegetable-filled pastas and pizzas topped with buffalo mozzarella and baked scallops. There’s also a kids’ menu filled with child-sized portions of spaghetti and meatballs and grilled cheese paninis, as well as pages where kids can color or practice their long division.
