Woodridge is one of the villages that surround Chicago, located in DuPage, Cook, and Will Counties. There are just over thirty thousand residents who call Woodridge home, and it was ranked #61 on Money Magazine's 100 Best Places to Live in 2007. There are many great parks in the area that are worth traveling to, including Cypress Cove water park, plus bike paths and golf courses, and a very impressive IMAX Theatre. Go ahead and take a peek at our top choices for drinking and dining in the 60517 and 60540 zip codes!
Clara's Pasta is one of our favorite restaurants in the Woodridge ara! Everything is completely fresh and homemade, and since it's family owned and run by Clara and her husband and children, you really feel that you're being treated to an amazing homemade meal. We're big fans of their cheese ravioli with alfredo sauce, and it also pairs nicely with their fresh vegetable marinara sauce! There are so many good things on the menu at Clara's!

BLUE GINGER SUSHI & GRILL
Blue Ginger is probably our favorite sushi restaurant in all of Chicago, mostly because of their unique rolls and excellent service. They've got a lot of spicy rolls for those that enjoy them, and their ahi tuna is some of the best that we have ever tasted. We also love their teriyaki beef oll, which is packed with flavor and so delicious! Free edamame on Sundays!

HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD CINEMA
While this one isn't a restaurant or a bar, we wanted to include Hollywood Boulevard Cinema on this list because it's such a great entertainment experience when you're in the area. It's a cut above all the rest, with high backed leather seating and Dolby digital sound. If you're wanting to catch a movie before or after dinner, this is definitely the place to go.
