Bistro One West Opens in in St. Charles

Mango (1995–2000) was one of those restaurants that everyone liked while it was open and loved after it closed. George Guggeis, who owned Mango, is back a decade later and 40 miles to the west. Bistro One West, his converted factory space on the banks of the Fox River, will boast a similar American bistro–style, which gives his chef, Trattoria No. 10’s Doug D’Avico, room to flex some muscle. “This is my opportunity to do a little bit more,” says D’Avico, so expect dishes such as white polenta with crispy pork belly, red mole, and heirloom radishes. As Guggeis says: “I want fresh. I want clean. I want a good value.” Could this be Mango 2.0? 1 W. Illinois St., St. Charles; 630-444-0600.
