    ......All in all a very good meal for opening day. Not surprised though as talking with the hostess/casher this is another store by the owner of North Ave Falafel at North and Oak Park.

    North Ave Falafel
    6814 W North Ave, Chicago


    Interesting, since the first few times I had been to North Ave Falafel it was completely underwhelming and I have not been back. Has any one been lately? Maybe it has improved.

    Maybe it was opening day excellence (with the boss breathing down the neck of the staff)?

    I was unable to find anything wrong with the recipes or preparation. We will see as reality sets in and they discontinue the use of the spit (there were two) like Falafelji further south on Harlem.

    Even the salad was fresh and crisp. I was the only customer and most items were prepared fresh.

    Falafelji
    3910 Harlem Ave, Lyons

    Coming soon (scheduled to open in February) to the Oak Park shopping district...

    Bricks Wood-Fired Pizza Café
    128 N. Oak Park Ave
    http://mobile.oakpark.com/Community/Blo ... ming-soon/

    It is in the location of the shuttered Eyrie which was part of Robert Morris University's culinary school.

    A bit of competition for the stalwart (and a personal fav of mine) just a few doors down...

    Geppetto's Pizza & Pasta
    113 N Oak Park Ave

    A half dozen locations in the Chicago area...

    Bricks Wood-Fired Pizza Café
    129 N. Oak Park Ave.

    Their website has the address as 128 N. Oak Park Ave.
    I believe that Avenues Nail Spa is still in business

    Thanks! Corrections made.

    Even the article showed 2 addresses but the Google Street view showed the ‘Coming Soon!’ Signs.
