About this Article

Fans of Asian cuisine can take an armchair trip to the Orient while visiting Silk Asian Tavern in Vernon Hills. New co-owners and executive chefs Cliff Ostrowski and Bo Wungwattana last fall redesigned and reconcepted the restaurant at 4 E. Phillip Road in the building that formerly housed Silk Mandarin. "We felt there was a need to bring a downtown experience to a suburban restaurant," Ostrowski said.
