  • Marion Street Cheese Market
    “Names like Prairie Fruits Farm, Hidden Springs Creamery and Shepherd’s Way Farms sound like they belong in a Laura Ingalls Wilder novel,” noted Food & Wine magazine as it took in Marion Street Cheese Market’s array of artisan and farmstead cheeses. Since 2004, owner Eric Larson has vetted a staggering array of traditional farms for the market’s collection of cheeses from small and independent dairies throughout Chicagoland and the world. Back at the shop, resident cheesemongers slice Cowgirl Creamery brie and Rogue River blue to order right off the wheel for optimum freshness. These join chorizo and heritage prosciutto on charcuterie platters, or headline dishes in Marion Street’s Bistro, a 2013 Michelin Bib Gourmand award winner. In the bistro’s dining room and on the seasonal patio, the slow-food menu comes to life with locally sourced dishes such as warm chèvre salad and rabbit pot pie. For shoppers looking to stock their own larder with culinary sundries, Marion Street Cheese Market lines its shelves with gourmet groceries, such as handmade chocolates, elegant jams, and hand-stuffed olives.

  • Barclay's American Grille
    The interior of Barclay's American Grille echoes the eatery's style: classic American with a modern twist. Situated inside the Carleton Hotel, the restaurant pulsates with a comfy yet elegant vibe brought to fruition by wide booths, flat-screen TVs, and modern wall art. But it still pays homage to the history of Oak Park with its historical photos and black-and-white checkered floor. The restaurant itself is even named after village historian and bicycle-shop owner Philander Barclay, who lived in Oak Park from 1878 to 1940. This vibe also extends to the menu, where chicken and dumplings and slow-roasted prime rib effortlessly mingle with pretzel-crusted rainbow trout and a black bean-quinoa burger. The classic yet modern decor and food results in a space where patrons are equally comfortable watching the big game in the bar during dinner or conducting a formal business meeting while stealing glances at the big game in the bar.
