Win dinner at one of the area's tastiest restaurants

Here's how to play:

1. Once a month, a picture will be posted online on In the photo will be a particularly wonderful dish from a local restaurant. This restaurant could be in Oak Park or another local community served by Wednesday Journal.

2. If you think you know the restaurant where the pictured dish is served, then submit your guess by clicking on this link.

3. All correct answers (assuming there's more than one) will be entered into a drawing.

4. The winner of the drawing receives a $50 gift certificate that can be used at that restaurant.

5. The winner will be alerted via email and has five business days to pick up the gift certificate at the Wednesday Journal offices (141 S. Oak Park Ave, Oak Park). Of course, we'll announce the winner right here at

Fine print:

* Contest runs noon-to-noon, Wednesday, February 27 through Wednesday, March 6.

* Contest is not open to anyone affiliated, past or present, with the Wednesday Journal or the restaurant to-be-named. If no one names the restaurant in the first week of play, we will run a "hint."

* Winners will be alerted by email and will have 5 business days to respond; after that, there will be a second drawing.

Big print:

PLEASE DO NOT POST ANSWERS HERE! You can certainly discuss the dish in the Comments section below, but posting correct answers will actually decrease your chances of winning (that's because the final winner will be determined by a drawing of all correct answers). Please post your answers to the survey.

I think it worked for me. It just didn't seem to be accepting it. I had to go thru Facebook to get it to work. Thanks, David.

David, one cannot enter this contest unless you are signed into Twitter. This is not fair. I completed all of the information except for Twitter and it won't let me enter my entry into the contest.

Doug, we thought the basket liner and flag would probably be giveaways, but we wanted to present the meal exactly as it's served at the restaurant. Thanks for not giving away the answer!

I don't recognize the dish per se but I do recognize the printed "paper" in the basket and the tiny flag stuck into the order.

I don't recognize this dish, but it sure does look delicious!
