Pork chops and applesauce. You get bonus points if you know the 70s pop culture reference – but another reason to utter those words would be a visit to Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in Oakbrook.


The wine cellar at Benny’s Chop House is immediately behind the bar. It's tall and narrow. Just wide enough for two people to pass each other if they’re really close friends.

The Beer Dinner Social at River Roast, featuring beers from 5 Rabbit Cerveceria and special dishes from Chef Cedric Harden is outstanding.
