Carnivale, Chicago, IL

Carnivale Restaurant Review

: It's Kleiner-style excess at this explosively bright, massive restaurant known for strong cocktails and Latin “fusion” food. If intimacy is what you seek, you won’t find it here; instead, people-watching, large-scale events and rowdy dinner parties are the draw. The Colombian-, Peruvian-, Spanish- and Mexican-inspired dishes incorporate many local and seasonal finds like Maple Creek Farm smoked ribs and short rib with ramp-potato purée.
