"I love Italian all the time, so it is no surprise that on Valentine's Day, I want my hubby to take me to Nando Milano. Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere and overall vibe really makes for a romantic and enjoyable evening. It is a hidden gem in downtown Champaign."

"My husband and I are big sushi fans. Any celebration, date night, holiday, or birthday is always a great excuse to indulge in the best of the best!  I highly recommend anyone to try this restaurant if you haven't already! This is the place to go."

Urbana, IL 61801

Team Member - Mike Goebel, Buyer Specialist
"Get ready for an authentic, intimate Italian experience. From the food to the atmosphere, Timpone's is the total package for date night. Plan to sit and enjoy yourself, as the pace of the meal resembles Italian dining at its finest. And the food -- chef's kiss.  I have never had a dish that I was disappointed in. Heck, we've never had a night at Timpone's we were disappointed with."


ET's Downtown Rantoul
107 E Sangamon Ave
Rantoul, IL 61866
(217) 893-0222
Team Member - Dakota Ruff, Buyer Specialist
"ET's has a wide, unique menu of takes on traditional American foods and more of a laid-back atmosphere. Their appetizers are to die for (get the chips with all three dips). From the burgers to the salads to the BBQ, you will find something to fall in love with. The Cuban sandwich with crack fries is an easy pick and the usual for me. They also have a large drink selection. Especially for you bourbon drinkers out there."
