Café Ba-Ba-Reeba!, Chicago's first Spanish restaurant, serves authentic Spanish cuisine. Featuring award-winning sangria, tapas & pintxos (the famous small dishes of Spain) and paella (a traditional Valencian rice dish) offers savory and colorful combinations of vegetables, cheeses, meats and seafood. Escape to Spain and experience inspired service while dining in the all-season patio and warm, hip ambiance enhanced by lively music. Monthly special events, cooking classes and catering for private parties of all sizes complete the offerings.<br /><br />Rain or shine, summer or winter, dine in the all-season patio featuring a sliding glass roof that opens during the city’s warmer months.<br /><br />Cafe Ba Ba Reeba! is owned by Chef Gabino Sotelino and Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises.<br /><br />

RPM Italian presents cuisine that is modern in approach and Italian in spirit, with dishes intended to be shared. Chef partner Doug Psaltis has created a menu which features a variety of cold and hot antipasti, more than a dozen freshly prepared in-house pastas, and a selection of salads, prime steaks, chops and slow-roasted meats. The restaurant also has an open bar area where guests can order a signature cocktail created by acclaimed bartender Paul McGee, or enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive list. Sophisticated and chic, RPM Italian is perfect for a great meal or late night out.

The restaurant focuses on high quality and made-from-scratch cooking perfect for sharing. Start with one of the fine, brick-oven pizzas – maybe a white pizza bianca with homemade fresh mozzarella – then move on to one of several antipasti, perfect for sharing with friends. Pastas are imported from Italy or made in house, with so many delicious choices you may opt to try one of the three-version plates of our kitchen-fresh gnocchi or ravioli.<br /><br />Scoozi's Wine Spectator-award-winning wine list ranges from half-bottles to three-liter giants, and you'll find over 30 wines by the glass, as well as Italian specialty cocktails and cordials made in-house from fresh fruit.

Mercat a La Planxa features an extraordinary selection of tapas dishes from cut-to-order charcuterie and cheeses to fresh seafood, steaks and chops, all inspired by Spain's Catalan region. The impressive menu includes an emphasis on meats and seafood served 'a la planxa' or grilled-to-order. At the bar enjoy a tempting array of seasonally inspired sangrias, Spanish-styled cocktails, an extensive collection of Spanish cavas and our carefully selected wine list featuring 40 Spanish wines available by the bottle or by the glass.<br /><br />Private dining is available in our upstairs space, La Veranda, overlooking the entire main dining room.

"Quality dining options convenient to the Auditorium Theater are thin - so this is a welcome alternative. Gourmet tapas and tasty cocktails."
