With it’s close proximity to America’s third largest city, Lake Forest has access to Chicago’s international traffic. One of the offerings that traffic brings is the food variety from all over the world. If you’re a resident of the Apartment Homes at Kelmscott Park, you have the benefit of being right around the corner from worldly cuisine. Here are some local restaurants with global taste.
Francesca’s Intimo specializes in serving Northern Italian food, specifically from around Rome, Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio.

Private event options are available for larger groups, and at some Francesca’s locations, events such as cooking classes are available.
