Maijean, a French-inspired Bistro

Opening soon in Clarendon Hills is Maijean, an upscale French-inspired bistro from Chef and owner Nadia Tilkian, formerly of Chicago's Bistro 110, Barrington County Bistro and Zinfandel. With an Art Nouveau-inspired interior and an intelligently crafted menu of country French fare — roasted Cornish hen with pancetta, garlic and red lentils or tartare of ahi tuna in a white balsamic vinaigrette as well as some inspired deserts, warm berry soup with goat-cheese vanilla ice cream — Maijean might be worth the trip to this sleepy suburb.

30 South Prospect Ave. Clarendon Hills 60514 (630)794-8900

Notably, and I know this is odd, the busboy was one of the best I've seen... Well worth it!
