The revival of the All American Oyster bar arrives through Pearl Tavern on the banks of the Chicago River. Restaurant developer Adolfo Garcia is enthusiastic about venturing on his own with the inception of Pearl Tavern. It has been a great aspiration of his to develop such a concept, in a historical location that will revive the spirit of one of the oldest taverns in the loop, Coogan's Riverside Saloon. He is hoping to reflect the landscape of the new American table by celebrating the sharing experience with a perfect balance of Old World oyster bar and New World seafood delicacies.

Bar Takito is a Latin inspired shared-plate restaurant and bar drawing inspiration from Mexico, Central and South America.<br /><br />The menu, which uses fresh and local ingredients, features seasonal shared plates, ceviches, seafood from the plancha, arepas, tacos and more. The complementary beverage program offers an expansive specialty cocktail, margarita, and craft beer selection.<br /><br />Bar Takito seats 130 to 160 people for lunch, dinner, and soon-after-opening, brunch. It has a semi-private area with a private bar that accommodates 40-seated guests and 50 to 60 standing. There is also seating for 60 to 80 guests along Morgan St. during the warmer months.
