I'll start by reviewing my favorite restaurant in all of Chicagoland, Rx Cafe. :) The food is just fabulous at Rx Cafe- wonderful gourmet dishes, prepared in small "tapas" plates for sharing. They also serve a variety of salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, delectible desserts and have a wine menu, though they have no corkage fee for BYOB.
My absolute favorite dish, is the mushroom ragout (pictured above). Mushroom and onion in a creamy broth, topped with puffed pastry. I love trying the new tapas they rotate on their menu and have tried many dishes, all of which have not disappointed.
A small eatery in downtown St. Charles, Rx Cafe is overlooked for the gem that it is. Whenever you are in the St. Charles area, give Rx Cafe a try. Don't be in a hurry when you come, as the dishes take time to prepare and I want everyone to come with the right expectations- take an evening to enjoy well-prepared, wonderfully-tasting, gourmet food with a bottle of wine you bring yourself or purchase there.
Below is just a small sampling of some of the mouth-watering dishes Rx Cafe offers:
Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with a fabulous citrus vinaigrette
Braised Pork and Polenta
Crab and Avocado
Sauces with crabcakes
blackberry lemon muffin
apple cranberry crisp
