Are There Too Many Restaurants in Downtown La Grange?

La Grange has become known as a destination for great food in the west suburbs, but are restaurants overcrowding everyone else?

This is a problem that, actually, is not really a problem at all, right? Can we really have too many restaurants in downtown La Grange to choose from?

The downtown area has become a destination for diners in the western suburbs due to a wealth of great food and great options. Still, some residents have told me they're still hungry for something more. Specifically, residents seem to want more retail options in the village's downtown area. I don't think any La Grange resident wants to see a restaurant close, but it does sound like some want more diversity.

What do you think?

Hey OakLawnian! My suggestion would be to check out Vintage Charm at the corner of Hillgrove and Brainard avenues. It's not in downtown, but it might be just what you're looking for. Another would be Mary Anne's Shoppe at Calender Court and La Grange Road. Readers what are your favorites? Throw a local boutique a bone and tell this reader where you like to shop!

Vintage Charm used to be an old school corner drugstore I bought candy from as a kid. Vintage and Charm are also adjectives I use to describe LaGrange, it oozes out of it pores.

OK, everyone. Stop your typing right now and go check out the pet parade. That's exactly what LG is all about. See you there!
