Saffron Restaurant

recommendation by jamie

I’m almost hesitant to write this because I don’t want my favorite restaurant taken over. I try to come out to Saffron once a week. I am definitely hooked on this spicy Indian restaurant. I would recommend getting take-out over sitting down, they do have a seating area but it’s a little awkward. Anyways, the food! This is the perfect fusion of authentic Indian food and spices. My husband loves the chicken tikka masala but I actually prefer the vegetarian paneers more (and I even eat meat).

Sushi Ya

recommendation by jamie

I only eat sushi when I’m out visiting the 'burbs. As much as I love the stuff I can’t deal with big city prices. I have to have soup and salad. Sushi Ya provides you with complimentary edamame and delicious miso soup. In the city – where they’d definitely charge you – that’s like an additional ten bucks at least! They have a very nice selection of traditional rolls and sashimi. They even have a “Schaumburg Roll” that’s pretty good as well. Located in a strip mall, wedged between storefronts.

The Improv Comedy Club

recommendation by jamie

Came here once to see comedian Russel Peter with friends. The club itself is actually quite beautiful, very clean and spacious. Anyways, there’s a “two item minimum rule” which requires you to purchase at least one food item or one drink item for the night. I get it, it takes a lot of money to keep the club so nice. I wouldn’t have had a problem ordering food if the service hadn’t been so horrible though. Our server was completely aloof and took forever. The food’s standard bar food.
