The menu at the Gateway Cafe goes through major changes nearly every day. That is so the staff can properly showcase the freshest ingredients possible. Part of that commitment is buying as many things as possible from local producers. They also have a higher per centage of organic ingredients than at most American restaurants. But as admirable as fresh, local, and organic are, the food has to taste good and have good presentation for a restaurant to succeed. The Gateway Cafe also does well in these areas. The restaurant is dark inside, but still well worth checking out the next time you are in or passing through Lyons.

The menu is definitely "gourmet" with things like boar, elk, buffalo, and lots of specialty ingredients, but we found the actual food to be lacking in much flavor. For instance, my husband had the grilled organic Korean buffalo "tacos" with housemade kimchee, but the buffalo meat had virtually no seasoning (not very Korean!) and was tough, and the kimchee was about the worst that we've ever had. Basically, we felt that the above-average prices on the menu should have dictated much better-tasting food. Gateway Cafe was a disappointment!

Pros: interesting menu

Cons: expensive, not particularly good-tasting food
