IL - Marion
Today was our 22nd anniversary, and we decided to celebrate
Instead of going to one of the usual places out by the malls, I googled Marion, Il restaurants, and found a wonderful Italian restaurant called Bennie's. It's been there for 40 years, but it's tucked in a little corner downtown, and I'd never seen it or heard about it.
I had baked ravioli in meat sauce and Kim had chicken/prosciutto tortellini in Alfredo sauce. The pasta and the sauces were definitely homemade, as were the salad dressings, and were they ever good! They have an extensive menu, and I wanted everything on it.
They don't serve alcohol, but I don't know where I would have put a beer anyway.
We get by with a little help from our friends
