Small wedding "reception" in NW burbs

Try the Barn of Barrington - they do a lot of weddings and they do have a lot of small rooms.

David Burke's Primehouse: Worth it or not?

I went there about a month ago - We were the first table there on a Sunday night and they sat us at the first table by the entrance. I just thought that was wierd. The service was good - wine list was expensive - all the usual suspects. The Caesar salad tableside was really good. And the gentlemen who made did know where it was invented (always a plus - someone must have trained him). But I was completly underwhelmed by the steaks. Especially at that price point. I have had a lot of steaks in my life and I found it no better then Outback.

has anyone been to montarra in algonquin?

I have beenthinking of trying - it recieved a nice write up in the trib and the area has very few non chain nice restaurants. If you can't recommend this - do you recommend anything else.

End of an Era: Gasthaus zur Linde in Elgin closing 10/4

I am sorry - I used to work in downtown Elgin and would never eat there. I used to be able to overlook it from the alley and it was looked horrible. This was 15 years - I am not sure if anything changed.
