What used to be the Maple Tree is like an old penny that has been shined up.
1034 Lake St, Oak Park
Still in the vein of your standard Greek diner but they have...
Turned up the quality a notch
Knocked down the menu a notch (Grrr... No open faced hot beef sandwiches)
Upped the presentation a notch
Raised the prices a notch
All in all we were very pleased with our visit!
The Country Rigatoni
Nicely done. Pasta a touch overcooked but the sausage was nicely browned, the peppers sweet and the cheese nicely melted.
The Grilled Pastrami
A good sized sandwich on marble rye. Tender but not as juicy as could be.
The Lox Plate
Advertised for two and it was just that for My Bride. Everything fresh sliced to order.
All in all a good choice for a nice and simple meal downtown.
