Oakbrook (Oak Brook) Shopping Center - Super Specific for the Locals

gadflier | Apr 18, 2009 12:01 PM

The quest: Single best dinner choice based on food alone, type and price of food irrelevant, that is in, beside or next to the Oakbrook Shopping Center for a guest at the Marriott without a car please?

I'm familiar from other cities with the chains represented in the center, such as Cheesecake Factory, Maggianos, CPK, but don't know about Wildfire, Braxton Seafood Grill, Baisi Thai, Clubhouse, Mon Ami Gabi, Antico Posto, Mike Ditkas, and whatever else I'm missing.

I've searched each of these names, and gotten a few mixed reviews, which of course is to be expected, but most of them sound like another chain I know: Houstons, and that some of them are in fact regional mini-chains.

As an aside, for the real locals, if there's a better choice not in the shopping center but equidistant (about 3 miles) to the hotel, that's fine of course.

Thanks so much for your time and suggestion.
