Vera is an intimate, chef-driven wine bar offering an exquisite selection of seasonally rotating wines from Spain, Europe, and The Americas, alongside Spanish sharable plates presented simply yet elegantly. In the spirit of enjoying food and wine at the table with others, Vera’s focus is on quality, artisanal products, made and presented with great pride and care. The warm and inviting décor reflects the essence of Spanish hospitality, including a deep commitment to food and family. Run by restaurant industry veterans Elizabeth and Mark Mendez, this ‘old meets new world’ wine bar welcomes guests to enjoy a piece of Spain by plate and the globe by glass.

Driven by the history of Chicago, the traditions of France, and the pursuit of excellence, Chefs Thomas Rice and Kurt Guzowski aim to create a resounding passion for life and food by sharing the art of charcuterie with their hometown. We come together as family to create a charcuterie experience that honors its neighborhood origins in France while strengthening our local Chicago community through the shared passion for food that brings us greater meaning.

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.
