Just off Michigan Avenue, Mercat a la Planxa offers diners a taste of Barcelona with its authentic Catalan cuisine. The mod-Mediterranean eatery boasts bright orange and yellow curved booths, exposed light bulbs, and a colorful hexagon pattern at the entranceway. Winner of a James Beard award, chef Jose Garces’s has created a menu of dishes that are designed to share. Guests can select meats like yellow fin tuna, wagyu flat iron steak, and chorizo, or opt for the tapas, which include bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with almonds. A list of Catalan-inspired cocktails is available as well.
