The family-oriented bar and grill would take up a portion of the Fuller's Home and Hardware space, but only if a change is made to the village's liquor code first.
Doug Fuller said his Dips & Dogs customers often tell him he should open a sports bar in downtown Hinsdale where families can have an inexpensive meal and adults can enjoy a alcoholic beverage or two.

A review by the Chicago Tribune’s Phil Vettel has appeared for Peter Burdi’s new restaurant CiNe Modern Taqueria in downtown Hinsdale, praising the visuals of the dining room and the food alike and stating that the restaurant tones down Burdi’s typical European influences without sacrificing them altogether. “Peter Burdi isn't yet the king of west suburban dining rooms, but he sure rules over downtown Hinsdale,” Vettel writes, citing also Il Poggiolo and Nabuki in addition to CiNe. He lauds CiNe chef Yanitzin Sanchez, writing that “she always pays attention to the visuals. Her red-onion soup is a playful nod to French onion soup… Chicken breast in mole negro is nothing new, but Sanchez's presentation—the breast topped with a panko-crusted…
