Having been spoiled by 20 years in Naperville, and working 5+ years in Wheeling, what a delight to stumble across David's Bistro shortly after we move up north. We have now visited 5 or 6 times, and have always enjoyed our evenings here. Dave wanders the dining room constantly, treating guests like old friends/family. The menu is extraordinary...not exotic, but certainly eclectic. I am not a fan of sweet dishes, so I avoid the mango chutneys/purees, honey dishes, pecans and apples & the like (so I'm a Phillisitne...shoot me), but the menu still has enough wonderful variety that I have have always found something extraordinary to please my palate. We're now on a fixed & limited income, but visits to David's never broke the bank, the staff has always been charming, gracious & attentive.
The starters are fantastic, and several could easily beome entrees, depending on your appetite. As for entrees, I have to struggle not to get the scallops every time I go there, although I recenly enjoyed the mixed grill. My favorite side is the 'Maished potatoes' and my drink is the 'Maish martini.' (David Maish is the owner.) They also have wonderful little ham hocks they call pork drums, that melt off the bone. My birthday is coming up in1 1/2 weeks, and I hope to be back there again for that.
