Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!, Chicago, IL

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! Restaurant Review

: Among the original tapas bars in Chicago, this Lettuce Entertain You restaurant continues to draw heavy crowds even after years in business. 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 sangrĂ­a (white or red) to wash it all down. As a finale, the caramelized banana never fails. Gluten-free and kids' menus are available, too. Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! has a go-to private dining space with capable, experienced staff for special events.
