Isabella’s Estiatorio

by Matt B on June 27th, 2007

For an unforgettable evening of fabulous food and impeccable service, try a taste of the Mediterranean at Isabella’s Estiatorio. An elegant spot with a rustic, warm atmosphere, Isabella’s is frequented by well-dressed west suburbanites looking for excellent Greek, French, Spanish, and Italian cuisine. The restaurant is seasonally driven, so the broad spectrum of vibrant flavors change on a regular basis. And even though the eatery is located in the suburbs, it offers an elegance and quality that matches and even surpasses many caliber restaurants within the city.

Crispy, fried zucchini cakes are paired with a Greek cucumber-yogurt salad. The tagliatelle pasta is exquisite with its wild mushrooms, asparagus, pine nuts, truffle oil, fava beans, and Lebanese yogurt. The black-pepper crusted filet mignon is so stylish and appealing, you may find other diners looking over to your dish in wonder and, perhaps, envy. A favorite among many, the roasted Amish chicken is made with several fresh ingredients like asparagus, peppers, and arugula. And you absolutely have to save room for desserts like milk chocolate banana cream pie, white chocolate mousse, and a trio of berry tarts.

It’s understated elegance in a small, historic town; a great place to have dinner after a day of driving, exploring, and shopping. If you believe food is meant to be an experience rather than just something you grab on the way home, Isabella’s is the spot for you.
