With its familiar food and well-known faces, a local restaurant and bar is a great place to reinforce a newly minted witness protection identity. Forget an abandoned life of crime with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of American fare at Manhattan's American Bar and Grill in Carol Stream.
Owned and operated by longtime Carol Stream entrepreneur Sindy Rogers, Manhattan's gives customers a place to relax and enjoy classic American specialties. The menu includes classics of the American kitchen such as beef stew ($10.99, $8.99 for seniors), as well as inventive takes on old standbys such as the Flaming burger—8-ounces of angus beef steak burger topped with saganaki cheese and lit on fire table-side, much to the delight of carnivorous pyromaniacs ($11.99). The restaurant itself is handsomely outfitted with wood paneling, featuring a large dining room and full bar with several flat-screen TVs hanging majestically above it like so many twinkling stars in the depths of the firmament.
