Parking lot was bustling this week with diners eager to try comfort food "with a twist" in a modern, mid-century environment.
It took longer than expected, but Kitchen Eatery is now open for business. What started out as a cosmetic re-do of the old Kopper Kitchen restaurant at St. Charles and Route 83 became a major overhaul of the building, leaving it looking nothing like its predecessor.

Parade steps off at 9:30 a.m. Monday, with a ceremony at the Veterans Memorial in Wilder Park to follow.
Do you ever wonder what Elmhurst was like 95 years ago? The Wilder family still owned the Wilder Mansion, trains on the Great Western Railway chugged through town. Think about the cars and clothing and celebrations in 1918—like the city's first Memorial Day Parade. World War I was just ending, after all. Ninety-five years later, the parade is still a significant event for Elmhurst families, who come out to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in service to our country. At this year's celebration, thoughts will not only be with all those lost, but also with our servicemen and women currently serving in the Middle East and elsewhere around the world. More than 80 entries are signed up to march this year. They will be led by U.S. Army Lt…
