Best Local Restaurant? Give Your Favorite National Exposure
The Huffington Post and Patch are seeking stories and photos about locally owned restaurants to share with readers across the country.
When Wild Monk moved into La Grange, I first read about it on Patch and knew it was a place I to check out. Big TVs on the walls showing sports, but not a sports bar. An extensive craft beer list. Unique foods.
I finally tried it out and have been going back ever since. I love trying their new beers (which they update regularly—like Monk on Facebook for latest tapping news), and their nachos are amazing, featuring braised beef, pub cheese and pickled veggies.
You've probably had similar experiences at other local restaurants; we all have our favorites. I get the same feeling when I order the chili con queso dip from Casey's Market in Western Springs.
Now you can pay them back by giving these local hotspots national exposure.
The Huffington Post recently launched a "Good Food, Good People" series, and we hope you'll help us contribute favorites from the Burr Ridge, La Grange and Western Springs area.
All you have to do is send your stories (preferably with a photo) to email@example.com. Include the name, location and contact info for the business along with your stories. (If it helps, you can email a Patch business directory link.)
"Send us your stories about how these people make your community stronger, whether it's through their good deeds, hard work, great food or even just their friendly smile," HuffPost Taste writes.
The first restaurant featured in the series is Calozzi's Cheesesteaks in Seattle. So let's rep some of our local favorites and get them featured nationally!
