Calamos Wealth Management hosted a client reception at Che Figata, an authentic Italian kitchen-bar-market at CityGate Centre. The ingredients-focused eatery was developed by Mark Grimes who serves as its executive chef and has a legacy of successful restaurant concepts.
Che Figata is centered around an open kitchen featuring wood-burning ovens. The artistry of Chef Grimes' hand-picked culinary staff is on display, and serves as entertainment for the eyes as well as taste buds.
Beyond the main dining area are two private-party spaces and additional seating beyond the market, which is stocked with freshly made pastas, sauces and grab-and-go meals. The unique layout allows for large events to be held undisturbed in the main dining area, while serving other diners in the additional seating.
"We are available for a large event buyout of the main restaurant but, at the same time, we never want to turn away diners," said Grimes. "The layout allows us to host such events without having diners show up and be turned away because of them."
Che Figata will open to the public May 31. Reservations are recommended. Visit OpenTable or call 630-579-3210.
Hosts of the NCTV talk show, Naperville Mom's Network, joined the festivities.
