In addition to its delicious bites, the gastropub and Lounge offers entertainment covered in retro arcade games, such as Pac-Man and live band karaoke nights exclusively on Sundays.
“Naperville has been a loyal community to the Scott Harris Hospitality team and we are thrilled to bring Zade’s Lounge and provide another great place to enjoy it,” said Scott Harris, Founder of Scott Harris Hospitality. “Zade’s Lounge is unlike anything we have developed and will be the perfect place to relax with friends and family while enjoying a great cocktail and sampling delicious dishes from our robust menu.”
Fiore Pizzeria & Bakery, located at 7407 Madison St. in Forest Park in the former space of Francesca’s Fiore, offers guests the full Scott Harris hospitality experience, from wood-fired pizza to freshly made homemade pasta. The handwritten menu is frequently refreshed with new choices of antipasti, pizza and pasta made with seasonal ingredients. For food-lovers, Fiore Pizzeria & Bakery offers a luxurious menu of Italian desserts including an assortment of gelato and sorbetto, tiramisu and affogato. Fiore Pizzeria & Bakery is overseen by corporate pastry chef Leslie Tellez, who creates and develops the restaurant’s homemade pasta which is distributed to all Francesca restaurants under the Scott Harris Hospitality umbrella.
