A 2020 Note From VAI’s



What do we say about 2020? “Good day, sir!”, comes to mind…

2020 has challenged us to grow in ways we can and can’t see. It likely won’t be until later, as is so often the case, that we witness and integrate the last year’s experiences personally, professionally, as friends, partners, and parents.


The truth about growth and transformation is that it’s messy and beautiful. One gift of being human is the capacity we have to care for one another. 2020 has required this from most of us and has reminded us how much we need each other and how important we are to each other as a collective.


As we close out this year we take a moment to reflect on all of the customers, friends, and family members that have supported us in the various roles we work and live in. We take a moment to convert our worries into gratitude… that we are able to serve our customers. And we take a moment to remember restaurants that have had to close their doors. We wish their owners and staff a full recovery in 2021. We have and will always appreciate the variety and color a thriving restaurant community brings and hope we rebound as a fuller, stronger community soon.

Cheers to a more whimsical and supportive 2021…

Best dining experience I've had in years. The food was cooked exactly as it was ordered. The service was impeccable and we were treated like we were the only ones in the restaurant (we weren't). Definitely would recommend this venue.

"VAI's has been open for 6 months and is already #1 on our list of restaurants in the Western suburbs. Ample parking, great beer and wine selections, efficient and friendly staff and terrific food. My favorites are the meatball sliders, salmon and pizza."
