If you have any preconceived notions of suburban hotel dining, leave them at coat check when you enter 2011 Rising Star Sustainability Chef Geoff Rhyne’s SugarToad at Hotel Arista in Naperville, Illinois. Rhyne has a garden where he grows vegetables and herbs, and he makes charcuterie in house with whole animals sourced from local farmers. Rhyne’s food is comforting and homey and laced with an unpretentious Southern accent (by way of Georgia and South Carolina). Wine and cocktail pairings—and warm service—from Sommelier Timothy Penick complete the dining package. A meal at SugarToad has rural leanings, big city appeal, and a happy home in suburbia.
