Welcome To The Peoria
Food and Beverage Scene By Chef Bill

What IS that old expression about Peoria??? Ah yes, "Will it play in Peoria?" This expression is an age-old throwback to the Vaudevillian days when Peoria was a test market for new shows, concerts, singers, and lots more.

{Peoria, Peoria food, Illinois

NOW the expression is: "We want YOU to play in Peoria!" There is a lot to do in this River City, and I am happy to be your guide.

While the city does have its share, perhaps more, of chain restaurants, these are not the aim of this reviewer. I want to emphasize the smaller, locally owned shops that bring a unique flavor to the city. We are a Midwestern city and the restaurants reflect that heritage.

We have a wealth of very fine Italian restaurants, and we have seen a number of Mediterranean/Indian/Pakistani restaurants that are starting up and showing some promise as well! With a nod to the influence of the Latino community and residents, there are also a number of Latino-influenced locations around the area.

I will continue to report on the latest openings, and report on a number of long-established spots, with a solid review to let you know where and when you need to go, and what may best be avoided to help you make the right decisions.

For starters, hit Paparazzi's for fabulous Italian in Peoria Heights, visit Jim's Steakhouse downtown Peoria for wonderful aged steaks and signature au gratin potatoes for a solid Midwest Experience, and stop by The Spotted Cow for famous in-store made ice cream!

Visit here often for updates as the scene changes frequently!

You will not be disappointed!
