    Try the mango and pear tart with the wonderful sweet pastry crust, crumbly almond topping, fresh fruit filling and exquisite dollop of house-made cajeta (caramel) ice cream! Read more

    Start with an array of appetizers to share. The gambas al mojo de ajo (shrimp with sweet garlic sauce) is my favorite entree, and I'm not even a shrimp person! Order it, and leave room for dessert.

    One bite of this candy-red sauce and I’m almost convinced it’s prime tomato season. Another bite of perfect black beans, tender tortillas and over-easy eggs and I know it’s just prime ¡Salpicon! Read more

    Presentation is gorgeous. Flavor is underwhelming. Outstanding place for drinks- both tequila flights and the house margaritas!! But you wouldn't miss the food.

    Filet was incredible! Just the right amount of spice and heat. A little pushy with the drink menu, but one margarita is worth it.

    The jumbo blue crab cake with avocado-tomatillo-habanero salsa reminds us why this spot is a longtime Chicago standout. Read more

    Absolutely the best Mexican restaurant in town. Ask for the sorbet even if you don't see it on the menu.
