Tanta is dedicated to sharing the flavors and culture of Peru with Chicago, serving authentic Peruvian dishes and beverages in an approachable, fun and casual downtown setting. We provide service that is casual yet knowledgeable, genuine and attentive, utilizing locally sourced products and vendors that are sensitive to sustainable farming and fishing.<br /><br />Tanta has two Chef’s Tables that each seat up to 10 people. These tables are located in our main dining room in between our open kitchen and ceviche bar which allows you and your guests to experience our chefs creating Peruvian cuisine while you dine.<br /><br />The menu, created by Acurio and Tanta Chicago Chef Jesus Delgado, takes diners on a voyage through Peru via its food. From the Pacific Ocean, through the Andes, to the desert, to the Amazon, Tanta celebrates the diverse landscape and ethnicities that make up Peru’s culture.

"Peru is a blend of a variety of different cultures and the fusion food at Tanta reflects many of them. Tuna tartar atop pureed potatoes is a blend of unique flavors and textures and is not to be missed. Think of ordinary ingredients combined in delicious, creative ways and you have covered the menu. Everything is topnotch and the service matches."

"This used to be a great neighborhood restaurant with good food at good pricing. One of the best offerings was that a variety of fish could be prepared in a number of ways and included 2 side dishes. Also there was a delicious seafood salad. All that is gone. The menu change is dreadful. Now that same fish comes arrives without any side dishes lying unappealingly on an otherwise totally empty plate. Side dishes are huge so instead of what used to be a lovely portion of 2, one side dish is overwhelming and very pricey. The meal is now so overpriced and unappealing in preparation that I would surely skip ever going. There are much better seafood options in the neighborhood."
