Rick Thayer recently bowed out of Thayers 158 North, selling the establishment to his chef, Brent Nardi. The restaurant has been renamed Nardi's on Chicago and is open for lunch and dinner. Menu leans toward Italian cuisine but other selections are available.

Thayer's 158 North is well worth the trip to downtown Joliet. Don't waste your time or money at any other establishments down there as I have. Simply put, everything they serve is great.
