Marco Santi is Highland Park and Highwood through and through.
The 1984 Highland Park High School graduate loves the community he grew up in. Following a successful career as a soybean trader for the Chicago Board of Trade, he decided to fulfill a lifelong dream to own a restaurant on the North Shore. Marco’s Northside Grill, 329 Waukegan Ave., Highwood, opened its doors this past December.
“This has been 30 years in the works and something I’ve always wanted to do,” Santi said. “I was bitten by the restaurant bug very early.”
