About Us

From Farm to Table.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner! A Chicago type restaurant in the heart of Wilmette. In today's changing world it is good to be conscious of our impact on the planet, as well as support your local community. That's why everything at Fuel is locally acquired from the eggs to bread we keep it close and keep it tasty. We use local organic produce, and meat from Wisconsin. We get all our breads from Heavenly Hearth Bread Company just down the street. All our food is made on the site, and most of it is made to order.

Unique drinks! All our coffee is fair trade as well. Here is what Splash Magazine's Barbara Keer had to say, "fair trade Metropolis coffee from a company that does 'small batch artisan roasting in the heart of Chicago' was the way coffee ought to be.” You might also want to check out our list of unique Italian Sodas.

Owner, Tim Lenon, moved to Wilmette from Chicago and soon missed some of the restaurants to which he was accustomed to. He thought Wilmette could use a really great “Chicago type” restaurant, and has now provided one. His long time dream of opening a "farm to table" breakfast-lunch restaurant and dinner was actualized when he suddenly had a life changing event and realized “there was no time like the present” and a “right” time might never arrive.
