You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Lisle Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
(Glen Ellyn)—Hankering for authentic Thai cuisine? Make the trek to Glen Ellyn, where Thipi Thai combines wonderful food with equally wonderful ambiance. Elephants adorn the outdoor sign, the walls and even the hostess stand. You'll find a fresh flower on every table, every day, and music that won't overpower the conversation. Suitable for a quiet weekday lunch or weekend date (although they recommend making reservations for dinner!). The restaurant features a full bar menu with imported beers and specialty drinks.
Recommended dish: Thai fried rice
Heading further east? Thipi Thai also has a location in LaGrange.
530 Crescent Blvd. 630-469-9001. Open for lunch and dinner daily. $
