Welcome to Cousin’s Restaurant & Lounge
Ben Bekiri and Max Salihi are cousins and long-time restaurateurs on their own. Ben owns the Rose Garden in Streator and Max owns the Sunfield Restaurant in Ottawa. It was their dream to go into business together. Cousin’s Restaurant & Lounge is in Bloomington, IL which are the realization of that dream.
Opened in the spring of 2016, Cousins Restaurant will serve burgers, pasta, steaks, seafood, sandwiches and salads. All created with high quality ingredients and years of experience. On the menu, you’ll find standards like Cheeseburgers, Cobb Salad and Fettuccini. Then you’ll see dishes with their own unique take like the Cousins Angus Burger, Mediterranean Skewered Salad and Crab Stuffed Ravioli Primavera.
Nestled behind the hotels on the northwest corner of Market Street and Interstate 74 on Bloomington Illinois’ west side, Cousin’s location adds to a cozy atmosphere that is close by, but off the beaten path, only 5 minutes from downtown. Newly renovated, the dining room offers ample seating for groups and cozy booths for two to four.
The lounge is separated from the dining room to allow for family dining in the first room and a candid spot for business meetings or after hours relaxing. The bar is fully stocked with high quality spirits and beer and there are several televisions so you can kick back while watching the game. The video gaming lounge is walled off for privacy.
Ben and Max hand-picked their staff the way they pick their food. With only the finest quality accepted. Stop in and visit Cousin’s and experience the difference for yourself.
