Consistency is key at Merlo’s Italian Restaurant.
For the past five years, the Highland Park joint has been serving up the same dishes from its original menu — and, there’s nothing wrong with that, owner John Merlo said.
“Our core menu has stayed almost 100 percent the same,” said Merlo, who owns the restaurant with his wife, Laura, and lives in nearby Glencoe. “We have developed our good staples, Chicago-style Italian food, so [customers] know what they are getting when they come.”
