Where to Eat

Edgebrook is home to various upscale dining options, with the two main destinations for food located on stretches of Touhy and Devon Avenues. Here you'll find hip, stylish sit-down restaurants flaunting food from all different continents, particularly specializing in Thai cuisine. There are more comforting options like burgers and fries as well. However, due to the neighborhood's small size, grocery shopping is generally done in other areas.

What You'll See

Due to its highly rated school system as well as being surrounded by other well-off suburbs, Edgebrook has a very affluent and child-oriented population. The neighborhood consists of mostly families and older couples or recent retirees enjoying the golf courses and residential yet urban lifestyle.

Friday Night Fun

Since Edgebrook is more of a bedroom community than anything else, most nightlife attractions are located outside of the neighborhood. Fortunately Edgebrook is surrounded by many neighborhoods and suburbs with a good selection of bars, movie theaters and concert halls. Easy access to the Kennedy and Edens expressways also makes travel to these areas very convenient.

The Perfect Sunday

Edgebrook is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts due to its close proximity to two forests preserves. Both areas offer excellent walking and biking trails for both the very active and the casual outdoors enthusiast. If you're looking to stay indoors on your weekend, the local branch of the Chicago Public Library is an excellent option as well as a quiet stop at a local cafe or coffee shop.
