While walking around the Hemmingway's Museum on Oaktoberfest, I found Hemmingway's Bistro across Oak Park Avenue. Hemingway's Days re foodminded me about good food in the afternoon. Hemmingway's Bistro has a Special Maine Lobster Salad served with Mango Vinaigrette, Salad Greens, Citrus and Raspberries during the Autumn Harvest Feast. I was really impressed by the large Maine Lobster succulent portions, sweet and tender to the palate. Great choice for Brunch!

* Be conversational: Write it as if relaying your experience to a good friend.
* Be specific: Generalities like ""lazy service"" or ""tasty pizza"" leave people wanting more detail.
* Be yourself: If you're an expert on burgers, let us know. If this is your first-time massage, say so.
* Compare apples to apples: Burger joints shouldn't be held to the same standards as four-star restaurants.

Many people get confused about the difference between fish oil liquid and cod liver oil. You can consider cod liver oil as fish oil+. Jerry Katzman The 2 are the same except that cod liver oil contains natural vitamin D and A. Jerry Katzman, I would recommend limiting your fish consumption and I suggest you consider replacing it with cod liver oil. This is NOT the cod liver oil which typically comes to mind, from many decades ago. Most cod liver oil from the past was and tasted terrible because it was improperly processed. It is now easy to find. Jerry Katzman Several studies and trials in humans have shown a favorable effect of dietary cod liver oil and fish oil on various risk factors for cardiovascular disease
Supplementation of the diet with omega-3 fish oil and cod liver oil concentrates has shown the potential to reduce both the progression of cardiovascular disease and related mortality, including sudden cardiac death. Jerry Katzman Studies have shown that the Greenland Inuit, when compared with the population of Denmark, has a significantly lower rate of death from acute myocardial infarction despite only small differences in cholesterol levels. So cholesterol is not everything.
I have been to Hemmingway's Bistro in Oak Park, IL, several times and the professionalism of the staff compliments the Owner's and the Hotel it is associated with. The food, my goodness, is delicious. Chef Ala and his wife, Lucia, personally greet each customer to see if their experience at Hemmingway's Bistro is what has been expected of a French Bistro. I believe the wine selection is excellent. This is a French Bistro, which accents French cuisine. Go to Hemmingway's Bistro, you will not regret it! Sunday Champagne Brunches are tasty and time flys by so quickly - - you will not find any cold bagels served at this Bistro!

Went for Sunday brunch buffet. Very small buffet table and live jazz was 2 guys pathetically placed in a dark, hidden corner by the buffet. Buffet had: refrigerator-cold bagels and croissants, one plate of shrimp/ oysters/ crab claws, a dry crumb cake. Poor quality food and dirty dishes.
Choose off menu for main 'entree,' took FOREVER. Ordered French toast, waffle, and roast du jour. Nothing special, roast was so tough that my mom didn't even touch it. She likened it to shoe leather.
Ordered waffle for my 3 year-old, an expensive waffle since children's rate is $12.95. He didn't touch the buffet, of course. They served him HALF the waffle and charged me $11 anyway. Drinks are at extra charge.
Basically, worst value for the money. $100 plus tip for a horrible brunch for 3 adults and a baby?! What a joke.
