THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chi-Town Restaurant Review

: We recommend a late-night visit to this Chicago-inspired joint, if for no other reason than to check out the dueling pianos. It's the sort of lounge act even Nashville doesn't see too often---although perhaps it's common in the Windy City. As for the food, it's all tapas, all the time. Not traditional Spanish ones, but festive fusion snacks prepared rather haphazardly, to our disappointment. Among the better offerings are the beef skewers and Maui chicken (we've never encountered this dish on Maui, but since it's coconut-crusted and pineapple-glazed, it must be from the islands, right?) On the positive side, the small plates are quite generously proportioned. Once you get the hang of it, you can eat your fill for not much money. And to give credit where it's due, the wine list is one of the best in the neighborhood.
