With such a wonderfully diverse community as Morton Grove’s, it’s great to have so many food options. We all have our favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner spots; each offering an unbelievably great variety of goodies brought to our tables by favorite waiters and waitresses. Just want a pizza? There’s at least a half-dozen places in town (some featured on local and national TV) that offer thick or thin, stuffed and deep dish. We also have Chinese, Vegetarian, Cajun, Filipino, Mexican, Japanese, Mediterranean, Sushi, Italian, Asian Dumplings, Middle-Eastern, Thai, Sea Food and Korean dine-in restaurants. Need fast food? Burgers, chicken, sandwiches, and salads are very easy to find. Looking to have a beer with a burger, messy hot wings, nachos, chips and salsa or onion rings? Morton Grove has that too! And don’t forget all those local places offering us coffee, tea, bagels, doughnuts, and sweet rolls in the mornings or eggs, pancakes and waffles for a more hearty breakfast. Perhaps what's truly "best" is that Morton Grove has such a variety of food choices available in our community. I hope everybody has fun while exploring our village to find them as fall approaches and our appetites gear up for the cooler weather.

Thanks Tony! Enough people are always writing from the negative/glass half empty perspective - so we need more positive postings and stories (like your excellent efforts with the "Seven Wonders of Morton Grove" contest). I hope more people are contributing their ideas to you and the committee for this on the project's Facebook Page - http://www.facebook.com/#!/7WondersOfMortonGrove
