1834 Utica Square, 749-3481
Offering the basics like bacon and eggs is never a bad thing; but to get your morning off to a healthy start try Queenie's homemade granola, affectionately called 'Queenola.' For a more interesting version, though, try the breakfast sundae: nonfat plain yogurt, Queenola, fresh fruit and a side of honey.

The Local Table
4329 S. Peoria, 794-8013
This Brookside restaurant uses local meat, dairy and produce whenever available. Start with a salad made with local greens or a goat cheese flatbread stuffed with smoked Gouda. Then, try Fried Chicken with a Cherry Tomato salad as an entrée. Other main courses include roast rainbow trout and Cajun meatloaf. As the season changes so does The Local Table's menu (depending on what's available), so keep your eyes wide open.
4532 E. 51st St., 481-3338
Looking for a place for that special date or important business associate? The Green Onion works for both. Start your meal with the famous stuffed mushrooms or the Maryland crab cakes. For dinner, try the tender filet mignon. If steak's not your game, try the Panko-crusted chicken breast, sautéed and finished with a mustard sauce.
MON-FRI AND SUN 11AM-2:30PM; MON 5PM-9PM, TUES-SAT 5PM-10PM
Crow Creek Tavern
3534 S. Peoria Ave., 749-9100
Usually eating crow is a bad thing, but this place is the exception. Crow Creek offers plenty of pub grub classics such as fried mushrooms, stuffed jalapenos, cheese sticks and more. If you're looking for something more substantial to go with your brews, try the signature Crow Burger or the grilled rib eye steak.
