Graceful Ordinary

3 East Main Street, St. Charles, IL 60174


Graceful Ordinary's is located in downtown St. Charles and its concept centers on the hearth, cooked on a wood-burning fire. Every dish is seasonal because they use only the freshest ingredients, sourced from local purveyors and farmers.

Located right on the Fox River in downtown St. Charles, Graceful Ordinary delivers an experience you can't get anywhere else, thanks to Chef Chris Curren and his wife Megan. Come to see the culinary genius of Chef Curren, a veteran of Chicago’s restaurant scene who has worked with some of the most celebrated figures in the city’s culinary scene at venues such as Zealous, Fulton Market Kitchen, Seven Lions and his own Blue 13.

In addition to the amazing food, Megan Curren brings her skills from a distinguished career in nightlife hospitality to create and manage unique and memorable events for our guests. You'll feel like you're being served gourmet in your own home!
