10 surprising and satisfying places to eat, drink in long-overlooked suburbs
Q Restaurant. You have to root for a restaurant like this. Quee Huynh was all of 19 years old when she came to this country, and now, at the tender age of 26, she's chef and owner of this Vietnamese fusion restaurant in Orland Park that opened in July. The neat-as-a-pin, brightly lit dining room seats 90, and the menu, largely Vietnamese with occasional Thai and French accents, is very approachable. You might assume that the beefsteak entree, topped with two fried eggs, is a concession to American tastes, but it's a recipe handed down from Huynh's grandfather.
