I'm a freelance writer and fitness instructor. I love food, and I think Chicago is home to the very best of it.
Tavernita is not a tapas place. It's a sexy small plates restaurant with a Spanish "inspired" menu -- but that doesn't take away from the sexiness. The food is best enjoyed with a big appetite and a friend (or three) who is/are willing to share. You will want to try everything -- and if you need help, the waiters make great recommendations. And don't neglect the veggie dishes, they are life-changing. Wash it down with a glass of kegged sangria, and I guarantee you'll have a Spanish-inspired sexy evening.

Restaurant: The Publican
Bloodthirsty customers can dine on suckling pig, blood sausage, or beef heart 'till their own heart is content (or wallet is empty...) Vegetarians and lighter foodies, take heed, the beer, vegetables, and fish are top notch too. This place has it all -- ambiance, down-to-Earth waitstaff, and without a doubt, the best food in Chicago. This reviewer (from Kentucky) is pleased by the bourbon selection too.
