All-temp al fresco
It may be winter, but the thermometer on Casa Bonita's outdoor patio reads a toasty 75 degrees daily. Standing and hanging heaters, as well as floor heaters keep you warm while you enjoy fresh air and Mexican eats, like the signature steak relleno, grilled skirt steak stuffed with gulf shrimp, red and green peppers, grilled onions, mushrooms and cheese for $21.95.
Casa Bonita Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar is at 633 N. Milwaukee Ave., Libertyville. (847) 362-4400, casabonitalibertyville.com.

It's been a year since the fast casual hand-made pasta joint, Ravioli Oli, opened in Oak Brook and you can join the celebration. Through March 11 receive free bruschetta with any entree, and get $5 off the purchase of a family feast. Try out the new appetizers, sandwiches or entree items such as the chicken Marsala, chicken piccata or pasta primavera -- all served over fresh linguine.
