Invest in Elmhurst's Future
Naomi Benson is a third-generation resident, a well-known entrepreneur, and a community activist.
Naomi was born in southwest Elmhurst in 1978 and graduated from Central High School in 1996. She attended Brown University, where she graduated in 2000 with a degree in political science. That fall, with her husband, Michael Benson, she returned to her beloved hometown to start a restaurant and raise a family.
The original location was so successful that in 2009 Naomi opened a second location in Woodward Park. Naomi now sits on the Elmhurst Restaurant Association Board of Directors. In 2010, the Elmhurst Business Journal named her one of Elmhurst's "40 under 40."
