One of Oak Park's newest eateries, Amerikas, 734 Lake St., is now open for lunch, offering "Nuevo Latino" cuisine lovers menu items not available on their dinner menu, according to Shannon Pluschkell, general manager.

 Pluschkell says the new lunch menu stays with the Amerikas theme "American with a Latin twist" and dishes run from $6 to $13.

The menu is available on and a quick glance reveals tacos, enchiladas, roasted cauliflower salad, a soup of the day, and more.

Vegetarian and vegan options are available, too, Pluschkell said.

"We always try to cater to everyone's needs," she said.

The new lunch hours run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., when Amerikas closes for an hour to prepare for the dinner menu.

Pluschkell added that Amerikas also will be open for brunch on Easter Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Reservations are available by calling Amerikas at (708) 613-4254.
