Tom Kelly's Brings 'Fun Pub Atmosphere' to New Lenox

With one owner having emigrated from Ireland and another growing up with the restaurant business, Tom Kelly's Chophouse & Pub provides a fun Irish-American restaurant in New Lenox. Kelly Trumpey, one of four co-owners at the restaurant, worked at her parents' restaurants since she was 15. Her parents, Pat and Jerry Lavery, owned Lavery's restaurants in the south suburbs. They wanted to open a different type of place and thought New Lenox was a great location. "Lavery’s more of a restaurant and banquets," Trumpey said. "Tom Kelly's is a little more versatile. Our food business has increased, but we also have a fun pub atmosphere. It's somewhere you can bring your kids or watch the game, and we also have a good nightlife. We have a little bit of everything." The "fun pub atmosphere" plays into the traditional Irish themes of [...]

Tom Bergin's Reopens After Remodel

Tom Bergin's is back. Some folks were worried the 76-year-old Irish pub's eight-month renovation might have sent Bergin's tumbling from grace. A few might have imagined in their bleakest moments that the doors would swing back open to reveal a "green" oxygen bar with shamrock-shaped throw pillows or a sleek, self-conscious gastropub. Devotees of the old Bergin's shouldn't stress: Like a beloved uncle emerging, refreshed, from a bender, the new edition is brighter, warmer and spiffier, but still the same beast. Under the reign of restaurateurs Warner Ebbink and Brandon Boudet, who also own Little Dom's and Hollywood's 101 Coffee Shop, the booths are decked out in soft green leather. Royal-looking wooden beams still vault over the dining room. A mirror behind the semi-circular bar in the center of the main room makes the party look more hopping than it [...]
