DATING FAVORITES | Suburban Couples Share


HOT SPOT IN NAPERVILLE.... “We love double dating in the suburbs with Mike and Bonnie Bowers (our friends who also live in Naperville). It's great to share stories which helps us realize that we are not alone with life's challenges. Mike and Bonnie have kids the same age as ours; we all have common interests, so it’s a lot of fun! One of our favorite places is Sullivan's Steakhouse in Naperville. They have the best bar in town for our age group with great ambiance, friendly bartenders and of course, tasty beverages. We love the live piano!” -Dana & Ed Kubiak, Naperville

A GLEN ELLYN FAVORITE.... “No contest - our favorite date night is Fire + Wine in Glen Ellyn. We've happily lived here for over 4 years with our three young children after moving from the city. Fire + Wine is the best Glen Ellyn restaurant in every way. Michael & Anthony Vai are wonderful hosts, and the entire staff offers excellent service. Nate makes the best lemon basil martinis (fig martinis are excellent, too!) We've been regulars since it opened over 2 years ago, but our favorites include their mussels & hanger steak. We are lifetime diners at Fire + Wine and are grateful to live minutes away!” -Art & Tina Michaels, Glen Ellyn

WE LOVE DATE NIGHT IN THE SUBURBS.... “We’ve been married 15 years and love dating in the suburbs because it’s very convenient. Since our oldest child is 14, that gives us the ability to go and enjoy a phenomenal dinner while knowing that our kids are safe and near. We recently headed out to Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House in Naperville. It has great service and an outstanding atmosphere; plus they have excellent steaks and sides big enough to share! Future dates will include places like Morton's & Sullivans in Naperville, Capital Grille in Lombard, and Tuscany & Gibsons in Oakbrook– all favorites of ours.” -Katia & Nadim Elkareh, Naperville

TRYING NEW PLACES IS WHAT WE DO BEST.... “My husband and I take our Date Nights pretty seriously. We love to mix it up and try new places. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Meson Sabika in Naperville and had a great time!”

-Elizabeth Gigler-Czerkies & Jeff Czerkies

PIZZA IT IS.... “Josh lives four hours away, and when he comes to visit, our mutual love of pizza makes Pie Five in Naperville our go-to date spot. It's the perfect place to get delicious, customized pizza, with friendly staff and a quiet atmosphere that's great for dates.” –Amanda Fowler
