To start your dinner at J. Alexanders’ in Oak Brook, enjoy the fire-grilled artichoke hearts, which – like other dishes on the menu -- leverage the flavor-enhancing qualities of open-flame cooking. Appetizers include the innovative steak rolls with chimichurri and ranch sauces and the powerful south-of-the-border flavors of Mexico City-style spinach con queso.

For a more traditional entrée, French brasserie style steak and frites (you know, fries) is a popular favorite, and steak Maui is fourteen ounces of marinated ribeye that never fails to please.
Downhome favorites include Carolina crab cakes, barbecue baby back ribs in plum sauce, and pecan-crusted trout finished with Dijon mustard.
Even the sides reflect the pan-regional diversity of J. Alexander’s menu with Southern Cole slaw and Mediterranean-influenced orzo and rice.
