Living walking distance from the Helen Plum Library, also means I have easy walking access to a number of great restaurants in downtown Lombard for lunch or dinner and to meet up with friends. That's why I was excited to enjoy a delicious dinner at the new Babcock's Grove House. Before Lombard was incorporated in 1869, both Lombard and Glen Ellyn were called Babcock's Grove. And Babcock’s Grove House was built as a hotel and later renamed The Lombard Hotel. The restaurant is located in the original building.
