January is for Local Bargains and New Favorites on Water Street!

With the holidays behind us and a long cold winter ahead, we’re all about bargains on Water Street.  January 10th kicks off an extended Restaurant Week through January 31- the perfect opportunity to try a new restaurant or indulge in something extra special on the cheap from one of your favorites.

We’re excited to announce the opening of Vasilis Mediterranean on Water Street, featuring traditional Greek and Mediterranean cuisine and wood grilled specialties straight from the hearth.  Here’s what the owners from the Francesca’s Restaurant Group have to say:

“Love, laughter & lamb—a celebration of food, family & Ouzo! Hearth cooking from the heart inspired by recipes from our Papou, passed through generations. Vasili’s brings elevated Mediterranean and Greek cuisine to downtown Naperville via a warm and cozy ambiance around our blazing hearth. Eat as strangers, leave as cousins. Welcome to our table.”
