THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Platiyo Restaurant Review

: Traditional Mexican with a contemporary spin is how Platiyo bills itself, and the billing is accurate, not to mention impressive. This is upscale, fully flavored Mexican food in a style that is similar to some of Chicago’s most noteworthy Mexican restaurants. There’s a front dining room with a fireplace and a smaller dining room with a bar toward the back. The walls are brick, the floor tiled, tables paper over cloth. The colorful décor includes papier-mâché dragons hung from the ceilings, and the menu brims with choices like wood-grilled tilapia tacos and pork and black bean sopes. There’s a good selection of wine and beer along with fine tequilas and artisanal mescals, and you’ll find fruity concoctions that include a blackberry margarita. Service is efficient and understands what the kitchen is doing.
