The Glen, in Glenview, got a new restaurant yesterday, one with the intriguing name of Elephant & Castle. While the name means nothing in a literal sense, it evokes images of British pubs with similarly odd and interesting names. And, yes, that’s the point. Elephant & Castle is a Brit pub-themed eatery and watering hole in the spot previously occupied by State and Main.
Knowing that yesterday (10.25.18) was opening day, my husband and I walked over for dinner from our Tower Crossing townhome that is adjacent to Glen Town Center. Sure, there were a few first day hiccups, but that’s to be expected. We each had a wonderful meal which suggests a bright future where State and Main couldn’t eat into the business of ever-popular Yard House. (pun intended!) Here’s a link to the menu https://www.elephantcastle.com/home/glenview
Bottom line: Elephant & Castle, at 1941 Tower Drive, is a great addition to The Glen’s many restaurants so enjoyed by Glenview residents and those who come from throughout Chicagoland’s North Shore for an evening in Glen Town Center. Whether it’s Yorkshire pudding or bangers and mash with a pint, you should give it a try.
