Name That Restaurant!

Win dinner at one of the area's tastiest restaurants.

Here's how to play:

1. In the photo above is 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 entry at this link starting Wednesday, May 1.

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, May 1 through Wednesday, May 8.

* 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).

MMNWTG, there's no unanimity of guesses, and there's no saying any of these guesses are correct, so it really doesn't matter.

makes me not want to guess

not really sure why they haven't disabled the ability to post. They do for other articles. Kinda takes the fun out of it, when idiots can't follow simple instructions.

Glad you like the contest, Phil, and sorry again for the server snafu this afternoon. The link will stay active for a week...and just a reminder to all, posting your guesses in this thread may actually diminish your chances of winner (IF you guess correctly, and I ain't saying that's happened yet).

The server has been down since a little before noon. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will be inserting the link to the voting site when the server is back up...or you can go there directly right now:

As of 2 PM on May 1, the link to submit one's answer is not active yet. So we can't submit our guess, can we, David?

Obviously people do not know how to comment to the blog since answers are showing up in the comments section. Maybe you need to explain in a little more detail how to post to the blog.
