Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! Restaurant Review

: Among the original tapas bars in Chicago, this Lettuce Entertain You restaurant took the city by storm. During the first few years of its life, the crowds were knee deep and elbow-to-elbow. During peak times --- despite the many tapas alternatives out there --- it’s still true. Whether you come for pintxos at the bar (such as a chorizo-wrapped date with manchego) or dive into Spanish artisanal cheeses, garlic potato salad and paella, order a pitcher of sangría (white or red) to go with. And the patatas bravas? Yeah, they’re good. As a finale, the caramelized banana never fails.
