The Tap In Pub & Carvery opened in March at the CityGate Centre on the Hotel Arista Campus.
This rustic casual dining pub and restaurant offers home-style cooking in a family-friendly environment at affordable prices, while also catering to a busy lunch and dinner crowd.
“It creates a warm neighborhood environment,” says Frances Nance, food and beverage manager at the pub, 2155 City Gate Lane, Naperville, off Ferry Road and Route 59.
Tap In Pub & Carvery, or simply The Tap In, also plans to introduce some highly anticipated golf simulators later this fall.
“They will be located on the second floor, up the stairs,” Nance adds. “There is also a bar, and a loungy experience with drinks.”
The menu features a few traditional American meals, such as hand-carved roast beef with Guinness Stout gravy for $13. In-house sandwiches include the popular buffalo chicken sandwich for $9.
“We have local beers — Two Brothers, Revolution and Solemn beer of Naperville,” Nance says.
Dimple Donuts opened a second location in February at 3027 English Rows Ave., just off Route 59 and south of 103rd Street.
The Batavia location has been serving the community for more than 21 years.
The drive-through shop is conveniently located to pick up a dozen freshly baked doughnuts and some coffee to-go.
Doughnuts are 99 cents each or $9.99 for a dozen. Apple fritters are sold for $1.99 each.
Ground breaking after flood
Rayme’s Steak & Fish House broke ground Sept. 14 on a new spot in Lisle. It has been closed since April 18 from flooding that left the restaurant 4 feet under water.
“It was heartbreaking. It (the floods) ruined a wonderful landmark,” says owner Jerri Nolan. “It’s been around since 1974.”
Nolan purchased the already thriving restaurant in 2009.
“I was thrilled by the outpouring of support from surrounding restaurateurs,” she says. Many of her chefs and staff found temporary employment with them.
“I’m hoping for Feb. 1 (to re-open)” Nolan says.
