Home Again Restaurant is having a grand opening celebration Saturday, April 28.

The event will take place at the restaurant, 4410 200th Ave., Paris from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Featured will be raffles, door prizes, live music and drink specials.

What’s behind the name? Chef/Ower Emily Schubkegel explains that the restaurant is a return to the area for her after eight years of working in the restaurant business in Chicago.

“We named it Home Again because I was in Chicago and now I’m here,” Schubkegel said.

Schubkegel attended Kendall College, earning a degree in culinary arts. She said having their own restaurant is the dream of every culinary school student. But most think it is too complicated for a beginner.

But with a little experience behind her, Schubkegel now has the opportunity to realize that dream with an assist from her family. Her mother, Terri Schubkegel, runs the front of the house at Home Again while Schubkegel rules in the kitchen. The rest of the Schubkegel family are also regulars helping out at the restaurant as well.

“This came along and it seemed like a perfect opportunity,” Schubkegel said.

While owning a restaurant is new to Schubkegel, cooking is not. She had a strong interest in cooking early on in life and her mom says she wanted her own restaurant at 5 years old.

In Home Again, Schubkegel is striving to offer an elegant but still family friendly feel.

“You can feel comfortable, but it still has some classy elements,” Schubkegel said of Home Again, which had its interior space completely redone before the opening on March 5.

She calls the food “elegant home cooking.” Everything is made from scratch. The menu offers appetizers, sandwiches, entrees and soups and salads.

So now with a couple of months behind her, what does the onetime ambitious culinary student think of owning her own place?

“I have fun every day,” Schubkegel  said. “We have long days, but it’s OK when you’re having fun.”

Home Again is open every day but Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Phone is 262-857-8200 and you can visit them on the web at: www.homeagainrestaurant.com
