A vision of restaurateur Jerry Kleiner, this Near West Side favorite aims to provide a carnival experience. From the restaurant’s high ceiling, a large glass panel filled with brightly colored tiles creates a kaleidoscope of funky hues while salsa music plays throughout the dining room. The menu of New Latin flavors includes dishes like arrachera, a grilled Angus skirt steak with rice and beans; churrasco, Nicaraguan-style wood grilled beef tenderloin; and pork adobo, braised Maple Creek Farm pork shoulder. Start your meal with a raspberry mojito or white sangria.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
