In Good Company

March 1st, 2009 · 3 Comments


About a month ago I noticed I was getting referrals to my site from Glenn’s Diner. Glenn’s is a restaurant I really enjoy, but I didn’t know why I’d be getting hits from their site. Futher investigation revealled that I’m listed on their brag page, along with Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Check, Please! and Chicago Magazine, to name a few. Flattering… now I need to figure out how to work this into a comp meal! :) Kidding!

If you haven’t been to Glenn’s, you should go. It’s a great casual seafood restaurant located at the Montrose Brown Line station. Every day they have 16 different kinds of seafood that are flown in fresh daily and they are always priced under $20. Dallas and I have recommended Glenn’s to everyone we know and have been there several times. Here are a few of our visits:

When Cinnamon and Erin and I went for all-you-can-eat king crab legs (Tuesdays for $33.95)
With Dallas, Jill, Brian and Kristin
When Rob was in town to do the sailing Race to Mackinac with Killian we went along with Dallas, Liz and Christina

Dallas and I just watched the clip from when Glenn’s Diner was featured on Diners Drive-Ins, & Dives. Guy spent a lot of time with Executive Chef David Najman in the clip. When I met Cinnamon and Erin for dinner at Glenn’s I was really early so I sat at the bar and had a glass of wine. It was a bit of a wait to place my drink order because the restaurant was slammed. The guy that ended up serving me was Chef Najman. We chatted for quite some time. When Cinnamon and Erin arrived he got each of them a glass of wine as well. In the end we had to wait a little bit, not too long, for a table, and so Chef Najman didn’t charge us for our drinks. Totally unnecessary, but it was a nice touch. He also stopped by our table a couple times to make sure everything was good later on. So, as you can see, not only does Glenn’s have great food, but great service from the top down as well.

Chicago Magazine

Chicagoist in Chicago Magazine

Chicagoist was chosen as one of Chicago Magazine‘s best web sites in the news reporting category. It’s not on the magazine’s site yet, so I took these photographs. Our call out is on page 64, but we’re also on page 60 where Jim DeRogatis said we were one of his favorite sites.
