Dining is at no neglect in suburban Northbrook. Local favorite Francesco’s Hole In the Wall, a neighborhood favorite for 30 years, serves comfort-driven dishes made with the freshest ingredients. Another popular Italian eatery in the area is Trattoria Oliverii, which serves many Italian favorites as well as thin-crust pizzas. House 406 is a great American restaurant with a steakhouse feel serving fresh, farm-to-table dishes alongside cocktails and wine.
