Carlos' Restaurant has a reputation as the place to go for special occasions. The menu is contemporary French served in a quiet, fine dining atmosphere. Just don't try to squeeze it in before a movie; the leisurely culinary experience typically takes more than two hours. While Chicago may have banned foie gras, it's still a popular menu item at this suburban destination. Carlos' also hosts a dinner film club, with discussion over coffee and dessert. On Monday nights, it's BYOB and servers will pair entress with whatever beverage you tote in.
