Is Naperville the next hot food town? That is the question one Forbes.com contributor asked in her latest piece highlighting two Agency H5 clients: Santo Cielo, Bien Trucha Group’s recently opened globally inspired restaurant atop Naperville’s Hotel Indigo, and Che Figata, the “Italy to Table” concept coming soon to CityGate Centre.
Santo Cielo (slang for “good heavens”) features innovative menu items, such as:
- Scallop chowder
- Sweet cucumber brisket sliders
- Charred Spanish octopus
- Saffron tagliatelle
- Aji-miso glazed sea bass
At Che Figata (translating to “that’s awesome”), expect real ingredients in real recipes, like:
- Carefully crafted homemade pastas
- Artisanal Roman-style pizzas
- Rustic dishes from the wood-burning grill
So, is Naperville worth the drive? This reporter’s answer is an enthusiastic yes, if only to visit these two hot spots. Read more here to see for yourself.
