He couldn’t believe it. Really, he couldn’t.
My family is hosting a Japanese exchange student for the next eight days. He will be attending Glenbrook South, the incredible high school serving Glenview. We picked him up yesterday and drove him to our home in The Glen, the North Shore’s premier lifestyle community.
After getting him settled in my husband, son and I took him out to dinner. Of course he doesn’t know the restaurants in the area so we walked him down Tower Drive which is the main restaurant and shopping area in Glen Town Center. There are 17 restaurants in this two block area, so he had quite a selection to choose from. I’m not making that up. It’s a half block from my front door to Tower Drive, and by walking for 5 minutes he had a choice of restaurants serving Italian, Greek, Irish, Thai, Japanese, Mexican and traditional American fare. He couldn’t believe the number of restaurants and the variety of food all within a brief stroll. I couldn’t understand what he was saying, but I could tell that he was amazed.
“Sato” chose Yardhouse, a great place with a large menu. We thought he might choose Ra Sushi Bar & Restaurant, but he was in the mood for an American hamburger. When his meal was served his eyes got really big because of the size of his burger. He even took a picture of it to send back home.
After dinner we drove him around The Glen, and he got to see our many luxury homes…single family homes, townhomes, row homes, duplexes, two-flats. These wonderful homes along with the upscale shopping and terrific Glen restaurants are what set The Glen apart.
