Catherine Manning graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Advertising, a field in which she worked for years in Chicago and New York before leaving corporate America to follow her dream of opening a restaurant. 

The result is Villanelle, a warm and inviting neighborhood place serving artisanal New American fare, made from locally and sustainably sourced ingredients.  Both the executive chef and the chief mixologist take advantage of the proximity of the Union Square Greenmarket when designing their respective creations.

Catherine is thrilled to open her door to her fellow U of I alumni, and she and her staff are working on some special Illini-themed offerings just for us.  We hope you’ll join us, and if you can, get in the holiday spirit with some festive attire (i.e., something you can still wear to work, but maybe a little dressier than usual)!
