THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Province Restaurant Review

: Ceviche, mole and empanadas were once considered exotic fare in Chicago. Then along came chef Randy Zweiban, formerly of Nacional 27, who educates diners on south-of-the-border flavors and ingredients at his own West Loop spot. Spain and Central and South America have a strong presence on the extensive menu --- which includes bites and raw selections as well as small, big and bigger options --- but the restaurant’s roots are American, with farm-to-table cuisine leading the way. Inside the gold-level LEED-certified, hot-pink-punctuated space with recycled chocolate brown leather chairs, cork floors and eight-foot wine wall, Zweiban is having fun, creating dishes like a spice-seared tuna taco with pickled cabbage; and chicken linguiça paella with manchego, rabbit confit and olives. End with an artisanal cheese course or molasses-scented cocoa and Capriole Farms goat cheese stack. Open all day during the week, you can stop by at lunch for a burger or come mid-afternoon for a snack and a glass of wine from the boutique or biodynamic selection.
