Restaurant owner, Franco Francese, will be unveiling his new restaurant, Coarse Italian, in Spring 2019 at Glenview Park Golf Club. The restaurant - co-owned with Francese’s brother, Vito Francese - will feature Italian fare, promising enjoyable dining experiences for golfers and the general public, alike. Coarse Italian will offer lunch and dinner - as well as breakfast selections during the golf season - and features a full bar. Outdoor events will take place during the summer that will feature food, drinks, and live music.
Franco and Vito Francese also own Mattone Restaurant and Bar in La Grange Park.
While Coarse Italian will feature the same ingredients and attention to detail as Mattone, it will have a brand new menu. The name "coarse" is used to represent rustic in nature. Luis Osorio serves as Coarse Italian’s Executive Chef, formerly of Enza in Glen Ellyn and Gaetano in Forest Park, now brings his talents to Coarse Italian. Also a former Marine, Osorio has served the United States through three combat missions in Afghanistan before a medical discharge from his duties. In addition to becoming a fresh Italian dining option for the Glenview community, Coarse Italian is also available for banquets, events, and luncheons.
Coarse Italian is located at Glenview Park Golf Club, at 800 Shermer Road, Glenview, Illinois, 60025.
