Good evening, I know that I am quite late on the blog today, but the day was swept away and I was not near a computer until just now. I have worked on painting with a dear friend, testing out a new surface to use. A day spent in laughter, smiles, inspiration and friendship. Nothing gets better than that. There are some people in this world that you have to work very hard on making a friendship work and fortunately for me, this relationship is pure pleasure. I am so grateful to have such a great friend in my life that shares my love for creativity. I learned so much from her and hopefully, I was able to give back a little something to her.
On my way home from her home, and after a discussion with my husband, I realized that I didn't need to hurry home to make dinner, so I stopped at Cibo Raccanto Restaurant in Rosemont. It is located on Touhy just west of Manheimn. I have frequented this restaurant many times and this evening I was privaledged with meeting the owner. He approached me to make sure I was enjoying my meal. I told him I was and then engaged in a very nice conversation. Now, if you happen to live in this area...or even nearby, I highly recommend taking a trip to this establishment. Their menu is quite vast and the quality and taste is top notch. Now I am not a food critic, but I do know what is good and what is not. I have yet to have been disappointed by this quaint and charming, antique ceiling establishment. With the sounds of Frank Sinatra serenading though the speaker system and the smells from the kitchen are all part of the wonderful experience in this place of business. The platters are quite full and if you have ordered a meal that comes with their homemade rolls you are truly in for a treat. Once you are finished with your main meal, you can walk over to the Gelato cooler and drool over all the wonderful choices available, and if treat isn't what you might be craving, then there is a choice of delightful baked goods.
When you visit this establishment, it as though you feel like mom has made you a special meal fit for a king or queen. The family is working an deserving you as well and not only are there meals delightful, but they also own the company that owns the company that makes the noodles and the sources that you find in the grocery stores. So from start to finish, this family is ready to serve and please their customers. A delightful treat for anyone. I hope that if you are in that area you will take my recommendation and stop in for a meal you won't forget.
