A new 88-seat gastro pub called Tin Cup located at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center has officially opened its doors.
Formerly The Grille, the completely re-concepted restaurant now boasts a whole new look and menu design. Featuring an expansive patio overlooking the pristine Championship Willow Crest Golf Club, Tin Cup brings the neighborhood an entertaining kitchen-with-a-view option for lunch, dinner, drinks, or private parties.
The Food, Drink & Specials:
Tin Cup presents affordable scratch-made, American pub style fare utilizing locally-sourced products. The menu is divided into four sections: "Snacks & Starters," "Entrée Salads," "Hand Helds," and "Sides." Highlights from each category include: 19th Hole Angus Beef Sliders, Sweet Potato Fries, Fried Cod Fritters & Chips, Cobb Salad, 9-Iron Steak Salad, Pastrami Sandwich, Popcorn Shrimp Wrap, and the Tin Cup Burger topped with thick-cut bacon. In addition to the standard menu that ranges in price between $4 and $15, a rotating chef's special will also be featured weekly.
For drinks, a wide selection of worldly wines by the glass and domestic/regional/imported beers are offered, with taps featuring locally-based micro brews including Downers Grove-based Alter Brewing, as well as an exclusive partnership with Tin Cup branded whiskey. Happy Hour, which is Monday through Thursday from 3 pm to 6 pm, gives way to $3 draft beer, $7 well drinks, $8 loaded nachos, $7 Bogey Wings, and $5 chips and salsa. Starting this summer, patrons can also expect a featured fish fry every Friday to cap off the special offerings.
One of the best outdoor seats in the suburbs to take in lunch, dinner or cocktails is Tin Cup's expansive 40-seat patio, which nudges up to Oak Brook Hills Resort's flower laden Chef's Gardens and Willow Crest's meticulously manicured fairways.
